Carrot Cake Recipe With Canned Carrots


I would like a carrot cake recipe that uses canned carrots vs. fresh. It seems as though that would work alright but I know no one who has had success in doing so.

Mine turned out very disappointing! It is worth it to me to peel and cook the carrots.

I have a wonderful bundt cake recipe that uses baby food apricots so I'll just bet the baby food carrots would work out fine. (10/30/2007)

When I think of the difference between canned peas vs. frozen peas vs. fresh peas I can't really quite picture using canned carrots. I too have heard of using baby food carrots instead. That seems a better option in my mind. Or perhaps you could cook some carrots yourself and mash/puree them...even starting from frozen if you just are not wanting to take the time to grate the carrots or do you just have some canned carrots you are trying to use up??

Anywho...here are some recipes I found on google:

with baby food:

with canned carrots...doesn't look like it faired well in the reviews:

These all sound so interesting - I have a mix in the cupboard & think it should get used one way or the other -- it wasn't free.
So I am still "trying to think" & taking in all this great input! I'm impressed!

Hi, I have used fresh grated carrots--which takes forever. Also pulled the carrots right from the garden, scrubbed them up. Cooked them slowly with little moisture. When done, use a potato masher to get proper texture--as if you used raw. I have also used baby food carrots. So you should be able to use cooked/canned carrots the same way. I use a bit more cinnamon, as I love it in my quick breads! The more moist my cooked carrot mixture is, the less oil I use. I also use whole wheat flour as well. Go to www.allrecipes.com and enter what you are looking for OR I just got this email--fantastic selections.
