(…and it’s made with applesauce!) To-Die-For Carrot Cake from MomOnTimeout.com | The BEST Carrot Cake you'll ever try! #recipe #cake #dessert I can’t believe I’ve waited this long to share this recipe with you! This is my Nana’s recipe {slightly modified} and it is sooo amazing! I get requests several times a year for this To-Die-For Carrot Cake and made it just last week for my sister’s birthday. I love this recipe because it’s a one-two-three recipe and that makes it so easy! The pineapple makes this cakes so moist and the addition of coconut adds a sweet, delicate flavor that you’re going to love! My Nana’s recipe is super simple and tastes incredible but what’s a carrot cake without cream cheese frosting?? In the interest of full disclosure, I ALWAYS double this recipe. We love our cream cheese frosting and although I never use it all, it’s amazing on top of graham crackers. That’s how my Nana would serve it to us for snacks ;) Invert the cake onto a cake plate or stand. Apply a generous dollop of frosting and spread… Gently place the second cake on top… and continue frosting. Sometimes if the cake is crumbly, I’ll do a crumb coat. If I’m in a hurry or don’t think it’s going to be an issue, I’ll skip this step. You can decorate the cake however you want {of course!} and I do it differently every time. I left out the nuts in this recipe and opted to decorate with them instead. I chopped up some pecans… …and then inverted a bowl onto the cake. I spread the pecans around the bowl… and ended up with a nice clean circle on the center of the cake. I could have left it like this but my family loves coconut so I filled in the center with shredded coconut. Turned out really pretty! Now all we needed was some candles… And a birthday girl to blow them out… What a cake!! I’d love for you to give this recipe a try – it really will blow your mind! I like to use light cream cheese frosting and then subbing the applesauce for the oil, well, obviously you can now have two pieces of cake ;) To-Die-For Carrot Cake {Recipe} Print Ingredients Cake: One 1¼ c unsweetened applesauce (or oil, this is what my Nana used) 2 c sugar 3 eggs Two 2 c flour 1 tsp baking soda 1½ tsp baking powder ½ tsp salt 1 tsp cinnamon Three 2 c grated carrots 1 c coconut 1 c chopped nuts (optional) 1 tsp vanilla 1 cup Dole crushed pineapple (not drained!) {use the pineapple in JUICE not syrup} Cream Cheese Frosting: ½ c butter (softened) 8 oz cream cheese (softened) 1 tsp vanilla 1 lb powdered sugar Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine #1 ingredients. Add #2 ingredients. Stir in #3 ingredients. Pour into a lightly greased 9 x 13 or two 8 or 9-inch pans. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cakes cool completely! For the frosting: Beat the butter and cream cheese until nice and fluffy. Add in the vanilla and powdered sugar and beat until nice and smooth.

Wicked Easy Carrot Cake *made this for Easter, and everyone loved it. Left out the raisins, and would add walnuts next time. Used store bought icing. I baked mine in a glass pan instead of a metal one, and it took 45 minutes to bake, instead of the 20-25 the recipe suggests.*
