NorNor’s Rich Moist Carrot Cakettes

Moist Rich Carrot Cake Recipe in Individual servings It is almost Easter and nothing says Easter dessert like carrot cake.  But this is not the dry icky carrot cake you pick up at the convenience store, nope!  This is my grandma NorNor’s carrot cake recipe.  And it is moist, delicious and a piece of …well cake to make!  (excuse the lame joke, I couldn’t help myself)  You may be wondering about the “Cakette” reference in the title.  Well, I have realized that I am completely incapable of making it in a bundt form.  That was what the original recipe calls for, but after numberless fails at ANY type of bundt cake, I came up with this little “Cakette” gem that is a winner every time.

Cake Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 1/2 cups grated carrots (I use about 1 1/2 bags of matchstix)
  • 4 eggs

 

Rich Moist Carrot Cake Recipe

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line a flat baking sheet with parchment paper.  Spray the parchment paper

with cooking spray for an easy release.

Place matchstix carrots in a blender with a little bit of water (you could use larger carrots, but the matchstix speed things up).

Spread over cooled cake.

Cut out small circles of cake, I used a drinking glass, and stack on top of each other.  Serve it up with a cold glass of milk.

This is my father and now husbands favorite cake of all time.  It’s moist, sweet with a touch of sour from the cream cheese frosting.  The perfect Easter dessert.
