Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

I think it is one month now, since we are baking in Sundays. I do always boil some soup in Sundays too. Soup will be for dinner today, lunch tomorrow at work, and lunch for work Wednesday.

I found this carrot cake recipe in Allrecipes. My recipes mostly are from here, but I often do check receptes and fotoreceptes too.

I will just copy the recipe instructions and ingredients here.

"My Grandfather (Sam) was famous for this cake. Everyone who knew him, knows of his famous carrot cake. He would always have some available for anyone who wanted it. We'll miss him, but his carrot cake legacy will always live on! Enjoy!"

Ingredients


Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8x12 inch pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine eggs, buttermilk, oil, sugar and vanilla. Mix well. Add flour mixture and mix well.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine shredded carrots, coconut, walnuts, pineapple and raisins.
  5. Using a large wooden spoon or a very heavy whisk, add carrot mixture to batter and fold in well.
  6. Pour into prepared 8x12 inch pan, and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour. Check with toothpick.
  7. Allow to cool for at least 20 minutes before serving.

I did not find crushed pineapple in my local store, so I bought canned pineapple slices and crushed them myself. Also I did not include flaked coconut as the store did not had them. I almost replaced raisins with dried cranberries as I was not sure if I have raisins left from last Sunday. Luckily my kid told we have half packet left in the pantry.
I will buy flaked coconut on Tuesday when I will do some grocery shopping in other city. I occasionally buy seasonings and condiments I do not have heard of, as there are recipes that require them. 
Yeah! I do have loads of Asian and Mexican spices I use for my cooking as I like spicy food.

Bon appetite!
