3 cups grated carrot
1 1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cups white sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 cup golden raisins
Beat together the eggs, oil and white sugar. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices. Add the carrots and raisins. Pour egg mixture into dry ingredients and mix well. Pour batter into a well greased bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 60 - 70 minutes or until done.
Frost with Cream cheese icing...
2 8oz bricks of cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
2 cups icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
In a medium bowl cream together cream cheese and butter until creamy. Mix in the vanilla and the gradually mix in icing sugar. Store in the fridge after use.
Recipe notes: I make only one small change. I skip the nutmeg and make it a 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. Maybe a little more. Make it for Thanksgiving dinner. You won't be sorry!
What is What's Cooking Wednesday and how can I play?
What's cooking Wednesday was born out of a desire to get out of that what's for dinner rut. Playing is easy, on Wednesday post a recipe that has been tried and tested by you and then pop over here and add your name to the Mr. Linky. When entering your name also add the name of the recipe in brackets and make sure you link to your What's Cooking Wednesday post and not just your blog's front page. *All front page links will be deleted!* Don't make me be a jerk. And don't forget to link back here, the home of What's Cooking Wednesday.
So for example I would write Shan (Speedy Chicken Stir Fry) in the name section. For the URL section I would post this: http://shanrev.blogspot.com/2007/10/whats-cooking-wednesday-speedy-chicken.html
I'll let you in on a little secret, my WCW recipes are almost never made on a Wednesday. So feel free to cook and photograph whenever you have time and join us posting on Wednesday
