|But first I will show you the results of the glass bread tube from yesterday. Before using it, you must butter the inside entirely. I used a recipe for Italian bread that came with it.|
|I doubled the recipe so I would have an extra loaf. I'm not terribly impressed with the glass tube but the bread was outstanding.|
Back to the cake. In the bowl of your mixer, beat 1-1/4 C. of vegetable oil with 2 C. sugar. In a separate bowl combine 2 C. plus 2 T. flour, 2 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. cinnamon. Whisk this together and add it to the sugar and oil. Beat in 4 large eggs. Add 4 cups of grated carrots, 1 cup of baking raisins, 1 cup of chopped walnuts and 1 cup of coconut. Mix just until combined. Pour the batter into two 9 inch buttered, floured and parchment lined pans. Bake them at 350 degrees for roughly50 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.
