"Tired of the same old, boring carrot cake? THIS is the Carrot cake you'll love forever! A little different because some of the ingredients aren't what you'd find in a 'normal' carrot cake. My own MOTHER, who despises anything coconut, had two helpings for dessert and took some home!! Don't knock it until you try it!! You'll never go back to that boring recipe again."

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 10x15x2 inch baking dish or 10 inch Bundt pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside. In a separate larger bowl, mix together the eggs, sugar and vanilla by hand. Stir in the oil; the mixture should resemble pudding. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients, then fold in the carrots, pineapple coconut, walnuts and raisins. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and spread evenly.
  3. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a small knife inserted into the cake comes out clean.

Footnotes

  • Note
  • Feel free to omit the coconut, walnuts, or raisins as your taste buds suit you. However, getting rid of the pineapple will take away from the moisture of the cake.

YUM! Try my alterations if you want a healthier version of this great carrot cake. I made several changes to the original recipe (based on some of the recs) and it came out smashing... Split the...

This is a really good cake, but when I tried this I didn't think it tasted like carrot cake. It was more like a spice cake that happened to have carrots in it. It's heavy, moist, and a bit greas...

This cake is so popular with my family that it was requested and served at a cousin's wedding! I use a 10 inch tube pan and frost it with the All Spice cream cheese frosting. The end result is a...

Yes, this recipe is a good one and is exactly like the Cypress Point Carrot Cake recipe from the 70's cookbook, Diet for a Small Planet.

This cake is wonderful!! It reminds me of something my grandmother used to make. Now I actually squeezed out some of the extra juice out of the pineapple before I folded it into the batter so ...

The anticipation of baking this cake was far better than the end result. There wasn't enough "cake" to go along with the add-ins and I thought it was too oily. I did make a thick glaze from cre...
