  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 2 Cups grated carrots
  • 1/2 Cup water
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 Cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 Cup raisins
  • 1/2 Cup crushed pineapple (do not drain)
  • 2 Teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 Cup walnuts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. (If you have a convection oven heat to 325 degrees F.)

Prepare two 8-inch round cake pans with butter and flour, spray with pan release, or use GOOP.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, add all the ingredients and beat at low speed just until everything is just incorporated, then increase the speed to medium and beat for another 2 minutes.

Divide the batter into the two prepared pans and place in the oven for 35–40 minutes. Test the cakes at 30 minutes; if a toothpick comes out clean, the cakes are done.

Allow cakes to cool for about 10 minutes in the pan, then invert onto a cooling rack until the cakes cool to room temperature.

Do not frost cakes until they have cooled completely.
