Backstory

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.

Ingredients

  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups shredded carrot
  • 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.
