Carrot Cake (Cake Mix)

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by mandabears

this is delicious, I started making it with a Duncan Hines carrot cake mix in the 1980's and had to switch to Betty Crocker when Duncan stopped making it. I actually made it for Miss Picky's first birthday and she will be 25 in June. The pineapple and raisins really make it moist and the the chopped pecans add a different texture. Try it with cream cheese frosting.

I made this for my son's second birthday sans nuts, and I added some grated carrots. Our friends just went crazy for this. Fantastic with cream cheese frosting. Wonderful recipe!
