Carrot Cake that Doesn't taste like Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake that Doesn't taste like Carrot Cake


    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    1 cup vegetable oil
    2 cups white sugar

    4 eggs
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    4 or 5 (4 ounce) jars carrot baby food

Recipe yields 1 10-inch Bundt pan


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10-inch Bundt pan.
    Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
    In a large bowl, mix the oil and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Blend in the flour mixture just until combined. Stir in carrot baby food. Pour batter into prepared pan.
    Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
