Pat's Award Winning Carrot Cake Recipe
A moist carrot cake made with both baby food carrots and grated carrots, plus chopped pecans and coconut, baked in a Bundt pan. Decorate with cream cheese frosting and chopped pecans, if desired.
This recipe is outstanding. Although what started out a disaster turned out to be an even bigger success. When I tried to get the cake out of the pan it broke apart into 4 sections. I was in tears because I couldn't serve it on Easter the way it looked. My husband sampled it and said it was the best carrot cake ever and I HAD to serve it...so this is what we did. I broke the cake up into bite size cubes and layered it in a clear bowl as follows... cake pieces, drained pineapple chunks and Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting. I repeated the layers 2 more times. The frosting recipe is on this web site also and it is also fantastic. It was a huge success and people asked for the recipe. I think I'll always serve it this way from now on!!!

This 2-layer carrot cake with raisins is frosted with a delicious chai-flavored cream cheese frosting, making it the perfect dessert for any special occasion.
Started out with cream cheese and butter at room temperature, and spread it on a completely cooled cake... consistency was just right, I had no problems decorating the cake. If you like your frosting super-sweet, you could add more sugar, but I thought it was perfect as is. Made it with "Pat's Award Winning Carrot Cake" from this site and got rave reviews!! Made a two-layer 9-inch cake and had some leftover frosting.
This was very easy and the best frosting ever! When I chilled the bowl and beater I put them in the freezer and that wasn't good because when I poured in the cream it froze along the bowl sides! It was still OK, but maybe I should have put the bowl in the frig instead of the freezer! I put this on Pat's Award Winning Carrot Cake (recipe on this site) and made a trifle by layering cake, drained pineapple cubes, and frosing in a clear bowl (3 layers of each) It was delicious and a great Easter dessert:)
