Carrot Cake

image from This is one of those days when I hope it rains.  Yesterday I biked 36 miles and today I am tired.  I am also yearning for carrot cake.  I have not had it for years.  Everytime I make our Protein Packed Carrot Muffins my desire is slightly sated, but the holiday has inspired me to create a version of the real thing that I can eat.  Actually, it is not enough for it to be something I can eat, it needs to be one that creates a cake eveyone else at the table is trying steal off my plate.

Here goes;

Preheat oven to 325F.
Whip eggs, water, honey and melted butter together.   In a separate bowl mix together dry ingredients, including carrots, raisins and walnuts.   Pour into 2 greased 9" cake pans.  Bake for 35 minutes bake at 325F degrees in a well greased pan.  Cool to room temperature and frost.

Angelica Grieco Thank you for your recipe. This cake is a wonderful remember of my first trip in Usa in 2006.  It was the first american cake that I tasted with my lovable brother Marcello, in Houston,Tx. Beautiful moments.Happy Easter Julie!

Lauren Hoover • Me too, the carrot cake that is! OMG, I'm so excited it uses ingredients that I use in my cookbook! Coconut milk, Agave and Earth Balance! I cannot wait to play with this recipe. Thank you so much for sharing it. :)  Great way to get more veggies into kid's especially if you use Coconut Palm Sugar which is low glycemic. Substitute equal amounts 1 to 1 for white sugar and the kid's will not be bouncing off the walls!  You can read more about Coconut Palm Sugar on my blog site:

Lenette Hernandez • I think coconut milk is under used and it has so much to offer. Thanks for sharing this recipe; it will be a great addition to my Easter meal.
Happy eating!
