THe recipe for carrot cake says 1 pound of shredded carrots. Problem is that i have a 5 pound bag of carrots. Anyone know how many cups of shredded carrots that should be? I am finding recipe from 2 to 2 1/2 cups for 2 cups of flour and this recipe calls for 2 1/2 cups of flour so I don't want to do too much or too little.
Grab a can of veggies that is close to 16 ounces in one hand, then grab some carrots in the other hand. If they feel pretty close to the same use them. That is the only help I can offer...sorry.
I'm not psycho.....I just like psychotic things.
Or if it's an unopened bag of carrots, divide them into five piles of approximately one pound each, distributing the sizes of carrots equally of course.
2 cups of shredded carrots = 1 pound
And that would be packed down, not piled in loosely.
