Grandma’s Apple Carrot Cake
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min.
This is the BEST recipe ever for a most carrot cake!! I added half a cup of bran flakes, extra half a cup flour, half a cup chopped walnuts, half a cup sultanas, my family demolished it!! I also only used 3/4c lightly packed brown sugar. It really is super DELICIOUS! Thank you for sharing!!
Did not set up. Baked an additional 15 minutes. Yes it is moist but like others, no rise either. Had good flavor. Turned out more like a pudding than cake.
Good taste. It lacks baking powder so it didn't rise. Next time I will add more baking powder and walnuts. The frosting is perfect.
The flavor was great! However, mine cooked about 35 minutes and once it cooled, it was very dense and a little gooey. It didn't rise a lot either. I'm not that familiar with carrot cake, but it didn't seem right to me. It was okay but not a favorite.
As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine I love recipes that use simple ingredients! This recipe was worth pulling out the food processor , it made quick work of a bag of baby carrots and a apple. Added 1/2 cup walnuts. Flavor was spectacular! My parents said best carrot cake they ever had. Super easy!
This was amazing. The sweetness of the apple added so much to the traditional carrot cake. I also loved that it made a small cake so we didn't have it around for days. In the future, I might add walnuts to the batter for a bit of crunch to change things up. I would also cut back on the confectioner's sugar in the frosting. It was a little sweet for me. This recipe is a winner overall!
What an AWESOME cake! I've made many different Apple Carrot cakes and this is by far the BEST. It was gone in a flash! Thank you for such a wonderful recipe!

i made this cake exactly like it said except i did 3 apples and some carrots enough to make 4 cups instead of 5 (i doubled the recipe). i put it in a 13.5" X 2" (3 Qt) glass baking pan @ 350 degrees for 45 minutes. it turned out perfect, moist and scrumptious. next time i will put the rite amount of carrots and apples if i have it but it was awesome!!! my 2 boys and their daddy went crazy over it!!!
