Carrot Cake - everyone's favorite

Do you hate carrots?

Try this recipe for carrot cake, and you will change your mind.

A good way to get your daily vegetables.

Recipes designed for the cooking impaired.

Please note: this step is one of the most important to remember:

After the cake is removed from the oven, it must completely cool to enhance the flavor.

It is best to make the cake a day before serving it.

Other considerations:

1. Regular baking powder has GMO corn byproducts in them. The only organic baking powder that i could find is Rumford aluminum free brand.

2. When choosing an organic cooking oil:

Never use Canola, Corn, Soybean, or other brands that have hydrogenated, or partially hydrogenated (or interesterified) oils listed - as they are quite unhealthy for human consumption.

Also note: that the caloric values are never a consideration when choosing organic foods that we ingest. There are no bad or unhealthy foods that are organic in nature. The main consideration in choosing the foods we eat are by personal choices, known allergies, and quantities that we ingest in one sitting.

Using common sense is imperative when choosing any diet to lose weight. With that being said try this organic carrot cake and let me know what you think about it.

Okay, I must admit I thought this was some kind of humerus title to draw the likes of me in; what delight to find it to be the place of a grand recipe full of technique and yummy temptations!

The "Skorr Wire Rack" video was really worth the stop-by today. I was surprised and captivated at the concept of this wire rack and its durability. When the spokesperson showed the vast growth potential for restaurant carry-out business, the product became a restaurateurs best friend in my mind. Thanks for a double-good hub!

I am usually very prompt and careful to reply to all comments. Somehow i was never notified of this comment.

Any who, i just wanted to acknowledge your comment and say thank you for reading and commenting. dw

Nice recipe. I want to give it a try but I am not sure if 100% pure corn cooking oil is available here. Thanks for sharing carrot cake recipe with us.

Thanks for reading and commenting. Although i listed the oil to use as 100% corn oil, it can be substituted with whatever oil you have available. I just do not use any oils that are hydrogenated, or partially hydrogenated, or Canola Oil, as these are oils manipulated by the manufacturers of oil simply to make a profit and they are actually quite unhealthy for human consumption. You will enjoy the cake. Good luck and let me know how it turns out for you.

I have modified the recipe to reflect this concern about the use of the oil.
