Carrot cake recipe

marcoprincipal, Jun 1, 2:19am
Does anyone have a carrot cake for dummies recipe they would be willing to share?I have googled but there are so many to choose from and as I am not a fan of carrot cake myself I dont know which one to try.It needs to be one we can double (or possibly even triple) as we need to make quite a big cake.Thanks!

This one is easily double, tripled...
BEAT 3 eggs, 3/4 cup oil and 1.5cups sugar, when light in colour add 1 tsp vanilla 3/4 cup orange juice and small tin of crushed pinnapple. In another bowl put 3 cups grated carrot, 2 cups wholemeal flour, 1 cup coconut 1.5 tsp mixed spice, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1.5 tsp baking soda, 2 tsp baking powder, .5 cup walnuts. Mix all together, bake 160 for approx 1 hr, keep checking after 50mins (oven dependent)
