Mmm Mmm Carrot Cake

Category : The Recipes

All South Africans LOVE carrot cake! Here is our favorite one so far:

4 Eggs
1 cup puréed butternut squash
1/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup white sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract

Mix the above together. Then add:

2 cups flour (cake flour works great, but all-purpose is fine)
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Stir until combined. Fold in:

3 cups grated carrots

Pour into two greased and floured loaf pans. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Optional icing:
3 cups powdered sugar
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 T. real butter, softened

Cream icing ingredients together and spread on top of your cooled cake.

Enjoy with a cup of coffee and say a prayer for Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

Pray for:
