Carrot cake

Monday, January 5, 2009

I got this recipe off the back of a cake mix box and decided to try it one day. I was amazed at the taste. You’ll love it!

What you’ll need:

1 pkg spice cake mix and ingredients needed to make it
2 c (about 3 large) shredded carrots
1 (8oz) can crushed pineapple, drained
1 c chopped pecans, divided
2 (8oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
2 c powdered sugar
1 tub whipped topping, thawed

Mix cake mix according to package directions. Stir in carrots, pineapple and ¾ c pecans. Pour into two 9” square pans. Bake 25 - 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cook in pans for 10 minutes then remove from pans and cool completely. When cakes are cooled, in a large bowl mix together cream cheese and sugar until well blended. Fold in whipped topping. Stack cake layers on a plate, frosting between layers and on top and sides of cake. Top with remaining nuts. Store refrigerated. Makes 18 servings.

Tip: If you can’t find spice cake mix just use yellow cake mix plus 2 tsp of cinnamon.

Cost:
boxed cake mix - $1.29
carrots - $0.89
crushed pineapple - $1.09
pecans - $3.00
cream cheese - $2.06
powdered sugar - $1.69
whipped topping - $0.99
