Moist Carrot Cake

Source: www.sleeplessinkl.com *thanks mimi for sharing the recipe!*

• 4 eggs
• 1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
• 1 cup white sugar
• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
• 2 cups all-purpose flour
• 2 teaspoons baking soda
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 3 cups carrots, grated coarsely
• 1 handful walnuts, chopped coarsely (quantity can be increased, to taste)
• 1 handful of raisins (or to taste – don’t put too much: it will make the cake too sweet) *cik ayu tak letak ni*

Ingredients for the frosting:

*cik ayu buat half the amount*

•1/2 cup butter, softened
• 8 ounces cream cheese, softened (1 box Philadelphia cream cheese or 1 tube of Tatura cream cheese)
• 2-4 cups confectioners’ sugar (TIP: start with 2 cups sugar; add sugar bit by bit if not sweet enough; 4 cups is too sweet for me; I usually use only 2)
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 round pans & line sides and bottom of pan with baking paper. (I don’t like the taste of the flour, so I don’t grease & flour my baking tins anymore.)
  2. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, oil, white sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla.
  3. Mix in flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  4. Stir in carrots.
  5. Fold in walnuts and raisins.
  6. Pour into prepared pans. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.

p/s: kek kat atas tu bakal jd santapan mereka2 kat opis esok.. org kata, kalau slalu jamu org murah rezeki =)
