Freeman Allen's Carrot Cake

Recipe by Judith N.
READY IN: 1hr 15mins
YIELD: 1 cake




  • Beat all frosting ingredients together with electric mixer on medium or high speed.
  • Combine flour sugar, baking powder, soda, salt and cinnamon in large bowl of mixer.
  • Mix until well blended, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Add oil to flour mixture while mixing.
  • Then add the carrots and the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each.
  • Stir in nuts and vanilla.
  • Mix well.
  • Pour into greased and floured 9x13-inch pan (***See Note).
  • Bake in preheated 350°F oven 50 to 60 minutes, or until cake springs back when lightly touched.
  • Cool in pan.
  • Frost with Cream Cheese Frosting.
  • ***Note:I prefer to pour mixture into 3 greased and floured 9-inch cake layer pans and bake for 30 minutes to create a frosted 3 layer cake which makes a beautiful presentation!
  • Just before bringing to the table to cut, I sprinkle the top with freshly shredded carrots.
  • Looks beautiful, you can only do it at the last minute, because they will turn brown if done to far ahead.
