“My fiance loves carrot cake so I decided to make him one for his birthday. I found the base recipe for this in a Garden Club cookbook and tweaked a few things to my liking. The best part about this cake is that it actually got MOISTER the longer it sat! Enjoy!”

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, egg sub, canola oil, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, 2 tsp vanilla, unbleached flour, carrots and walnuts and raisins (if using). Mix well.
  3. Pour into a 13x9x3 baking dish and bake 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  4. Side note: I have not tried this as a layer cake so the cooking times in the round pans may vary!
  5. While the cake is baking, make the icing.
  6. Start by combining the softened cream cheese and margarine. Mix until well blended.
  7. Add the powdered sugar and 2 tsp vanilla and mix until combined.
