“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.” - by HEATHERINPUYALLUP
Original recipe yields 24 servings
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 10x15x2 inch baking dish or 10 inch Bundt pan with cooking spray.
- 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.
- Bake for 55 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a small knife inserted into the cake comes out clean.

"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 flour..." See more 1/2 white, 1/2 wheat... Split and reduced sugar 3/4c brown, 3/4c white, added 1c unsweetened applesauce and 1/4c oil to cut down on grease factor, added pecans instead of walnuts (only about 1/3c smashed) and golden raisins instead of brown. I also didn't add the coconut (forgot!) and instead mixed it into the cream cheese frosting (also made with 1/3 less fat cream cheese and less sugar than recipe called for). The frosting was AWESOME... just let it sit for an hour or so to let the coconut flavor permeate. Also... use a hand mixer to incorporate the wet ingredients and MAKE SURE to DRAIN the pineapple very well by pushing out excess liquid in a metal colander/sieve."
"This is outstanding! I thought my original recipe was the best, I was wrong! The only alterations I did was use half buttermilk and half oil and cut the sugar to 1 1/4 cups and use brown sugar it ca..." See moreme out moist and delicious, it cut down on sugars and fats. An excellent recipe, full of fruit and has a low GI rating, a healthy snack that I do not mind my children eating occassionally, with the above alterations, each slice (based on 24 slices baked in a large recantular tray) has under 1/3 ounce (7 grams) of fat! That is less than a granola bar. Thanks for the recipe!!"
"This cake was delicious, moist and flavorful! I put the raisins and carrots in a bowl with the pineapple while I got everything else ready, to let the raisins hydrate in the pinapple juice and they w..." See moreere extra-plump and yummy in the cake. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!"
