Recipe of the Week: Carrot Birthday Cake with Honey Cream Cheese Frosting
Posted Oct 02 2008 3:16pm
My husband requested a carrot cake this year for his birthday. I went to work trying to create a healthy, yet still yummy carrot cake. I'm still tweaking it and looking for ways to make it healthier. This recipe made 2 dozen carrot muffins (for our track team) and a personal carrot cake for Ericlee, which he kindly shared with his wife.
Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease pan. 2. In a blender or with a high-powered mixer, blend carrots, eggs and oil. 3. Transfer to a bowl if not already in a bowl. Add walnuts. 4. Mix in dry ingredients: flour, sucanat, baking soda and cinnamon. 5. Bake approximately 25 minutes for muffins and small cakes; 1 hour for 10-inch tube pan.
