Carrot Cake

All of the recipes for carrot cake that I've seen call for grated carrots. This recipe is a little different in that it calls for cooked and mashed carrots. Let's make it!
Sift the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, powder, salt, soda, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
Eggs, mashed carrots, oil and crushed pineapple go into another bowl. No need for the Kitchen Aid for this recipe... everything mixes up easily by hand!
Add raisins and chopped walnuts. Pour into a 9-inch cake pan and bake for 45 minutes at 350F.
This made a very moist and delicious cake. Now I know that to some people carrot cake just isn't complete until you add cream cheese frosting, so I've included that in the recipe which you can find by clicking right here.
