Whilst Grandfather Sam may no longer grace the earth, the legacy of his 5 Star Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing Recipe lives on and today you will learn how to make it. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the ingredients that you will need.

Carrot Cake Cream Cheese Icing Ingredients

3 eggs

3/4 cup buttermilk

3/4 cup vegetable oil

1 1/2 cups white sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 cups shredded carrots

1 cup flaked coconut

1 cup chopped walnuts

1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple with juice

1 cup raisins

As you can see from the ingredient list above, the recipe uses buttermilk. This is what Scotchgirl had to say about this recipe from the reviews section.

“This really is the best carrot cake in the world. I changed 3 things: regular milk + 1 teaspoon lemon juice in place of buttermilk as I was out of it. 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg was added and also I covered my raisins with orange juice and brought them to a boil, letting them simmer for a couple of minutes.

I then took them off the heat and let cool. I drained them and added when prompted by recipe. I baked in 3 (9″) pans for 25 to 28 minutes. I then frosted with 16 oz. cream cheese, 1 stick butter, 1 teaspoon each of almond and vanilla extracts and 32 oz. powdered sugar sifted. I had a carrot cake fan taste this and he said it was the best he’s ever eaten. It is! Thank you Brian for this recipe.”
