To avoid shredding carrots when making carrot cake, I put pieces of cut raw carrot into my blender, along with the eggs and oil called for in the recipe, then blend until they're finely chopped. —June Dearman, Canton, Ohio
Rich in flavor, these luscious bars are extra moist, thanks to a secret ingredient—baby food! "I add two jars of pureed carrots to the batter," reveals Rita Pearl of Norwalk Iowa. "The baby food makes the dessert melt in your mouth."—Rita Pearl, Norwalk, Iowa
I found this recipe in a cookbook and made some changes to it. My husband likes to have it for his birthday cake. We live with my husband's family on a 27,000-acre ranch in the mountains and raise cattle, grain and hay.
A pleasingly moist cake, this treat is the one I requested that my mom make each year for my birthday. It's dotted with sweet carrots and a hint of cinnamon. The fluffy buttery frosting is scrumptious with chopped walnuts stirred in. One piece of this cake is never enough!—Kim Orr, West Grove, Pennsylvania
