  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup snipped maraschino cherries
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts

Directions

  • Combine eggs, oil and milk.
  • Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; add egg mixture. Mix until just moistened. Stir in remaining ingredients. Spoon into 4 well greased and floured 1 pound cans. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 to 50 minutes. Let set about 10 minutes before removing from cans.

Notes

These cakes made great gifts! They are different than the usual fruitcake. Carrots add another flavor and texture! You'll need 4 one-pound coffee cans for this.
