Carrot Cake (Cake Mix)

Carrot Cake (Cake Mix) created by mary winecoff

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.

    Great recipe! I used milk instead of water and added 1/2 cup shredded carrots. I made a 2 layer cake with 8" pans. For frosting I mixed 1 8oz tub of cool whip and 1 can of 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!
