Easy Carrot Cake Recipe
Using a box mix (or my own simple yellow cake recipe) makes this a very easy carrot cake recipe. The 2 cups of carrots are just enough to give this cake that special texture and sweet flavor. The salad dressing ensures that the cake stays moist and of course the frosting tops it all off.
This is a fun and easy cake to make with the kids and one that will hopefully get them interested in carrots as a regular vegetable or in a salad as well.
