#3785 - Two Bowl Carrot Cake

(by Shirley McNevich)

3 beaten eggs
3/4 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup canola oil
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1-2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 cups shredded carrots
1 cup Baker's angelflake coconut (plus extra for topping if you wish)
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 - 8oz. can Dole crushed pineapple (do NOT drain)
1 cup raisins
Frosting: use our recipe #308 Cream Cheese Frosting

In a saucepan add the raisins and cover them with water. Cook/stir raisins over medium heat until water is boiling. Once boiling, cook/stir for 5 minutes, then drain well and set aside. Into a bowl sift the flour, baking soda, white sugar, salt and cinnamon. In a separate bowl add eggs, buttermilk, canola oil and vanilla--mix well. Add flour mixture to oil mixture--stir well. Add shredded carrots, coconut, chopped walnuts, pineapple (and its juice) and drained raisins--stir well. Pour batter into a greased and floured 9 x 13 aluminum cake pan (carrot cakes get too soggy if you use a glass cake dish). Bake at 350 degrees 50-60 minutes--test with a toothpick for doneness. Cool completely. Frost with our recipe #308 - Cream Cheese Frosting, then sprinkle more coconut over the frosting (if you wish).
