Recipe of the Day: MOM’S CARROT BUNDT CAKE



This is another of my mom’s recipes. Most carrot cakes are layer cakes that include pineapple and are frosted with a cream cheese frosting. This was is different… a bundt cake without pineapple or cream cheese.

I remember mom grating the carrots by hand. I now use a food processor.

MOM’S CARROT BUNDT CAKE

1-1/2 cups vegetable oil
2-1/2 cups sugar
4 egg yolks
5 tablespoons hot water
2-1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cloves
1-1/2 cups grated raw carrots
1 cup chopped pecans
3 egg whites

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease well, then flour 10-inch bundt pan.

2. In large bowl, with electric mixer at medium speed, cream oil and sugar until well mixed.  Beat in egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition, then beat in hot water.

3. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices, then beat into egg mixture.

4. Stir in grated carrots into batter, then add the chopped pecans.

5. Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until soft peaks form, then fold into batter.

6. Turn into prepared bundt pan and bake at 350 for 60 to 70 minutes, or until a cake tester or toothpick comes out clean.  Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then remove from pan and cool on rack.

7.  Dust cake with powdered sugar, if desired.  Cut into wedges to serve.  Cake keeps well when wrapped and refrigerated.
