Introduction: How to Make a Carrot Cake
This instructable will teach you how to make a delicious and moist carrot cake. Soon I will have another instructable on how to decorate the cake.
Step 1: Gather Your Ingreadiants.
You will need
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cups canola oil
2 cups grated carrots
1 cup well-drained crushed pineapple
1 cup chopped walnuts
Step 2: Drain the Pineapple
Drain the pineapple, save 2 tablespoons of the juice.
Step 3: Give the Carrots a Little Shave
Use a cheese grater to shred the carrots. You need 2 cups of carrots. This may take up to 5 good size carrots.
Step 4: Mix
In a large bowl beat the carrots, eggs, walnuts, pineapple and the 2 tablespoons of juice until the mixture is well blended.
Step 5: Combine the Dry Ingredients
In a smaller bowl mix together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and the salt.
Step 6: Stir Everything Together
Mix the flower and carrot mixtures together until the mixture is thick.
Step 7: Bake
Transfer into a greased 13-in. x 9-in baking dish. Bake at 350 F for 40 minuets. A good way to tell if the cake is done is to put a toothpick into the center of the cake and if it comes out clean it is done.
