I looked high and low for an easy carrot cake recipe. I found this very easy to make because the cake is baked using commercial cake mix. It is a yellow cake mix that you can get from the supermarket or bake shop in the pastry section. Do not underestimate pre-mix cake packs, they do wonders and is stress free

Here are the ingredients for this easy to make carrot cake with yummy frosting.

A box of 2 layer yellow cake mix
1 and 1/4 cups mayonnaise based salad dressing
4 eggs
1/4 cup cold water
2 tsp cinammon
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups finely shredded carrots
1/2 cup of chopped walnuts

Cheese frosting
3oz softened cream cheese
1 tbsp condesed milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 cups of confectioners' suger, sifted

Method: Combine the cake mix, salad dressing, eggs, water, cinammon and vanilla in large mixing bowl, beating at medium speed. When it is all smoothed and well mixed, add the walnuts and carrots stir it till it is all covered with the mix. Bake this at medium heat till the cake comes out clean when inserted with a toothpick.

The frosting is simple, just beating the chees, milk, vanilla and sugar until it becomes smooth light and fluffy. When the cake is cooled completely, frost it with this creamy mix. Try it and you wont be disappointed.

4 cheers:

Wow, I did not realize that you could use a mayonnaise based salad dressing. Is there anything you can substitute for that that is no mayonnaise based?

i believe this recipe was created because the mayonnaise is already prebinded with yolk and oil so that it is easy to bind with the cake mix.

if you prefer one that do not use mayonnaise, i think you may have to beat a yolk separately with an amount of oil but need to do lots of tweaking since this recipe is best with mayonnaise.

usually the use of oil can be a little tricky as you need to make sure you drizzle into your egg mixture and mix it well. otherwise, you might opt for a full carrot cake recipe cos this recipe is all about shortcuts..
