Mom’s Carrot Cake

My Mom made the best Carrot Cake ever and today I’m going to share her recipe with you 🙂 Brought back a lot of memories yesterday when I made this 🙂 This recipe has been enjoyed by lots of family and friends over the years.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cup oil
  • 4 eggs (beaten)
  • 1 c coconut
  • 2 c sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup walnuts (i don’t put them in as no one likes them in my house)
  • 2 cups grated carrots
  • 1 can crushed pineapple, drained

Mix together sugar, oil, and eggs. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Add carrots, pineapple, and coconut, and walnuts. Pour into lightly greased 9×13 or I use a fluted tube pan and make 12 muffins when I do. They freeze really well too 🙂
Bake at 350 for 40-45 min or till done

Once completely cooled ice with Icing:

Cream Cheese Icing

  • 1 pack of cream cheese (softened)
  • 1/4 cups butter (soft)
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla

Mix together and beat with beaters until light and fluffy. Spread on well-cooled carrot cake
