Why I Love This Recipe

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 You'll Need

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


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.
