Directions

Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Grease and flour two 9-inch cake pans.

In a large bowl stir together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and sugars.

Add butter, one egg, and vanilla; blend with electric mixer on low speed.

Increase speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes.

Scrape down sides of the bowl.

And remaining eggs, one at a time, beating 30 seconds after each addition.

Add carrots, pineapple, raisins and walnuts.

Blend on low until thoroughly combined.

Pour batter into prepared pans and smooth the surface with a rubber spatula.

Bake in the center of the oven for 60 to 70 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean.

Cool in pans for 10 minutes.

Then invert cakes onto a rack and cool to room temperature.

TO PREPARE ICING:

On a medium bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth add lemon juice and vanilla; beat until combined.

Add sugar gradually, mixing on low until smooth.

TO FROST THE CARROT CAKE:

Place one layer on a cake platter, and with a metal, spatula spread icing over the top to form a thin filling.

Place the second layer over the first, rounded side up.

Coat the top and sides of the cake evenly with remaining icing.

Refrigerate 1 hour to set icing.

This is the best carrot cake ever. My friends said that would buy it from me. I only make it on special occasions. MJ

Yeah, I had been forward the same recipe with two tablespoons of baking soda too! No wonder it tasted horrid. Thankfully you got the right measurements now.

The frosting was delicious. I thought the cake could of been a bit more moist. I rate the cake a 7 out 10.

This is not the recipe in Mrs. Field's cookbook. That has shredded sweet potato and apple sauce. Plus, in the instructions, you need to pour it into THREE round pans to bake, because it won't cook as well in just TWO pans.

Yes it is the recipe in the Mrs Fields cook book. I have the cook book. I have baked this cake several times and it's delicious. It's very dense which I love in a carrot cake!

Epic recipe! Followed recipe closely but creamed butter and sugar (I used slightly less than 2 cups of brown sugar altogether), added egg one by one then slowly incorporated dry mix. Ommited pineapple. I baked it in one 9in/23cm cakepan (cake rose nicely and was dense + moist) 180C for 65 mins and reduced to 150 for further 20 mins. Left to cool in pan for 30 mins then turned out on a plate. Will definitely bake again, thanks!
