Simply Pure Carrot Cake and POM Winners

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed the extended vacation if you took part in Independence Day.  Before we begin with what I coin as a “Killer Carrot cake” with cream cheese icing I want to announce the two winners of the POM Giveaway.

I think POM is on of the most wonderful products to come out! Who doesn?t love pure and natural foods?! Never tried the juice, but I love the idea!

I love pomegranate juice :D

It?s a great mixer for alcohol. Hahaa.

Now on to the carrot cake.  This was another extension of my great baking afternoon last Wednesday which so far has included chocolate cream cheese cupcakes and rhubarb cupcakes.  With today’s recipe, I think we went overboard and hit a Grand Slam.  This cake is simply amazing.  And not to under estimate the amazing baking skills of my sister in law - it is quite easy to make!


2 Cups White Sugar
4 Eggs ( well beaten )
3 Cups grated carrots
2 Cups flour
2 Tsp. Baking Powder
1 Tsp. Soda
1 Tsp. Salt
2 Tsp. Cinnamon
1 Cup Mazola Oil


8 Oz. cream cheese
3 Tbsp. Butter
3 1/2 Cups Icing sugar
1/4 Tsp. Salt





Add Sugar, gradually to mazola oil.
Beat well after each addition.

Add beaten eggs gradually to sugar and oil mixture.
Beat well until smooth and fluffy.
Sift dry ingredients and add gradually.

Add carrots and mix well.
Bake in a 10′ Tube Pan that has been lightly greased and floured.

Bake for 60 minutes and let cool for 20 minutes.


Leave cake upside down on cooling rack until completely cool.

For the frosting - Cream cheese, blend in butter and icing sugar and salt.  Mix until smooth.  Spread over entire cake.




Zesty Tip: Be sure to let the cake cool completely before both icing and cutting.  If you are like me you will love this cake chilled but some people swear by eating it warmed through in the microwave.

Have a great Monday and I can’t wait to hear what you think of this decadent yet simple carrot cake and how your weekend was.

Take care
