CARROT CAKE – Version One

I think this recipe came from my sister-in-law, Nancy, years ago.  There are actually two versions on the typed sheet, and then three different types of frosting, so I will include the others in future posts.


Sift together 2 cups flour, 2 cups sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 2 teaspoons soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt.  Then add 3/4 cup buttermilk, 3/4 cup vegetable oil, 2 teaspoons vanilla, and 3 eggs.  Stir well by hand.  Add 1 – 7 oz pkg flaked coconut, 1 cup crushed pineapple (well drained), 1 cup nuts and 2 cups raw grated carrots.  Mix well, bake at 350 degree F about 55 minutes.


1 – 8 oz pkg cream cheese

1/2 stick butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 box powdered sugar

Beat well until smooth
