Here’s a recipe that’s sure to get you excited because it’s so easy, and it’ll also be the highlight of your next event where you’ll be showcasing your delicious and easy carrot cake recipe:
What you need:
- 1 package yellow cake mix
- 1 cup real mayonnaise
- 2 cups carrots, finely grated
- 2-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 4 large eggs
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (feel free if you don’t like it)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees while making batter.
Combine mayonnaise, eggs, 1/4 cup water, cake flour, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Beat them together with an electric mixer. Do this for about 3 minutes on a medium setting. Then add the walnuts and carrots and mix well.
Next, take your 13×9 inch baking pan and grease it. Make sure that not only the bottom but also the sides are well attached so that the carrot cake does not stick to the pan. Once greased, pour into a carrot cake mixer. Spread it out so it sits evenly in the pan to help it cook evenly.
Then put the cake in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes.
Check it regularly with a toothpick during the last 10 minutes. If you stick a toothpick in the center of the cake and pull it out, the cake is done.
Let it cool before freezing.
