Fancy Carrot Cake

My Aunty turned 55 last week. 55 years of life deserves something special. So I was hired, to make a carrot cake, with cream cheese frosting. However it couldn’t have coconut. That was the one request. I was pumped up. Birthday celebrations are my favorite, and carrot cake, one of my specialties. Here is a recipe that is moist, fluffy yet perfectly dense, and thoroughly mouth watering!

Weapons of Choice (Aka ingredients) 🙂
2 1/2 cups carrots
1 cup raisins
Zest of 1 tangerine
8 oz pineapple crushed and drained
1cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 cup coconut (optional I didn’t use it.. But is sure is yummy!)
3 eggs
1 cup oil canola, or coconut
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 cup flour
4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg (don’t omit this, it is an important ingredient!)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

For full step by step instructions.. Check out…. Fancy Carrot Cake!

Let’s see how it turned out…. 😉
