National Carrot Cake Day * Feb 3rd

Happy National Carrot Cake Day : yes it’s today. And as a fan :  I am celebrating with some great recipe & fun facts- So let’s Begin 74544_640x428

Mom is there Carrots in the cake ? Might be my favorite way to eat my veggies.

There is no better support for this rule of thumb than the open-source encyclopedia’s entry for carrot cake, which currently begins: Carrot cake is a cake or pie which contains carrots mixed into the batter. … The carrots themselves do not enhance the flavor, texture, and appearance of the cake.

 

Looking for a time saver – This ones is from Kraft Carrot Cake recipe

 

  • 1 pkg. (2-layer size) spice cake mix
  • 3 large carrots, shredded (about 2 cups)
  • 1 can (8 oz.) crushed pineapple in juice, drained
  • 1 cup chopped PLANTERS Pecans, divided
  • 2 pkg. (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed

 

 

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Prepare cake batter as directed on package; stir in carrots, pineapple and 3/4 cup nuts.
  • Pour into 2 greased and floured 9-inch square pans sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake 25 to 30 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool cakes in pans 10 min. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely.
  • Beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl until blended. Whisk in COOL WHIP.
  • Stack cakes on plate, filling and frosting with cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle with remaining nuts.
