Because my Banana Muffin Recipe was so incredibly popular, I decided to post the recipe for my favorite Carrot Cake as well. This recipe comes from a Canadian Living Cookbook I was given as a gift many years ago. It is a moist, and delicious cake that is easy to make. I made it for Liam’s first birthday, and he loved it (and still does!)

Instead of icing it, I just spread some cream cheese on a slice. Less sugar, and just as yummy as it is sweet enough without extra icing in my opinion.

Carrot Cake

4 Eggs

1 Cup White Sugar

1 Cup Brown Sugar

1 Cup Vegetable Oil

2 Cups All Purpose Flour

2 tsp. Baking Powder

1/2 tsp. Baking Soda

1 tsp. Salt

1 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

1/2 tsp. Nutmeg

3 Cups Grated Raw Carrots

1/2 Cup Raisins

1/2 Cup Finely Chopped Nuts (optional – and omit if serving to small kids)

Beat eggs well in a large bowl, and add sugars in gradually, beating until light. Beat in oil. In a seperate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir into egg mixture. Stir in carrots, raisins and nuts(if using). Pour into a greased and floured 13X9 pan, and bake in a 350 degrees oven for 35-40 minutes. Enjoy!
