Marjorie Baker's Carrot Cake Recipe


  • ¾ cups Brown Sugar

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter

  • 1 cup grated carrots

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 ½ cups flour, sifted

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon water

Melt shortening. Add brown sugar. Add carrots, beaten eggs, and rest of the ingredients. Bake in a greased (I use Baker's Joy spray) 6 Cup ring mold at 350 Degrees for 45 minutes. Test for doneness with a toothpick (it should come out clean). 10 osen sides with knife if necessary, turn upside down on a round platter, to serve. May be mixed the night before, covered, and refrigerated, and bake d the next day. Recipe may be doubled to use a 12 Cup ring mold to serve 12-14, depending on the rest of the menu.
