I love my Mom's cake recipe but wanted to lighten it up. My husband and I think that it is just as good as hers! It is very moist and flavorful.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix together carrots, applesauce, oil, eggs, and sugar.
  3. Add pineapple.
  4. In a separate bowl combine flour, soda, and cinnamon.
  5. Add to wet mixture and mix well.
  6. Add raisins and walnuts and mix by hand.
  7. Spray pan well.
  8. I usually cook mine in a bundt pan or as cupcakes. As a bundt cake cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour. As cupcakes they take 20-25 minutes. Make sure you check them and toothpick comes out clean.
