TO DIE FOR CARROT CAKE

This To Die For Carrot Cake receives rave reviews for it's unbelievable moistness and flavor! Truly the BEST CARROT CAKE you'll ever try! So easy to make and as an added bonus, there's no oil or butter! I know this cake will quickly become a family favorite!



Ingredients
Cake:
One

  • 1 1/4 cups unsweetened applesauce or oil, this is what my Nana used
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs room temperature

Two

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Three

  • 2 cups grated carrots
  • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1 cup chopped nuts optional
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup Dole crushed pineapple not drained! {use the pineapple in JUICE not syrup}

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 lb powdered sugar
  • top with toasted pecans or coconut if desired

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine #1 ingredients. Add #2 ingredients. Stir in #3 ingredients.
  3. Pour into a lightly greased 9 x 13 , two 9-inch pans or three 8-inch pans. (The cake is very moist so cutting parchment for the bottom of your pans will ensure they don't stick. I prefer to use the non-stick baking spray that has the flour in it for easy cake removal.)
