Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat 9 x 13 inch pan with cooking spray.
  • Whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
  • Mix in eggs, splenda, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla.
  • Stir in pineapple (with juice), carrots and walnuts.
  • In a small bowl, mix raisins and 1 tablespoon of flour, then stir into batter (this will keep them from sinking to the bottom of the cake).
  • Pour into prepared pan and even out.
  • Bake approximately 40-45 minutes, or until top of cake springs back when lightly touched and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Cool completely before frosting.
  • Blend cream cheese and splenda; fold in whipped topping.
  • Frost cake.
  • NOTE: I use a hand grater to grate (not shred) the carrots. I tried doing it with a food processor but the carrots were very dry and made the first cake dry. With the hand grater, I get some carrot juice with the carrots and this helped make the second cake more moist..

    Thank you for posting your recipe for this carrot cake. I just made my fifth carrot cake tonight using your recipe. No joke. All I did was substitute the Splenda and used Natural Cane Sugar. The cake was dense and moist and the pineapple's really worked out. I also added a tablespoon of ground Flaxseed . Thank you again.

    Hi this was a good carrot cake for my first try with a sugar free cake. I accidentally rated this a 2 and it should be a 4. I will make this again.

    Yes you can make it in layers and frost in between. Just adjust your baking time when baking the smaller layers.

    Can you make this in several layers and ice in between so it's like a real carrot cake?
