  • ISO Carrot Cake Recipe using baby food carrots- or how to substitute babyfood for grated carrots
    The one I am thinking of also has crushed pineapple, coconut, and pecans. I found a recipe that fits the bill but uses grated carrots instead of babyfood. What adjustments would I need to make if I used that recipe but substituted the babyfood for the grated carrots? Would I need to adjust the amount of liquid? I need this asap because today is dh's birthday. I have all the ingredients except real carrots, but I do have the babyfood carrots.

    I just got back to the board - it has been a very busy day! As it turned out, ds arrived with a carrot cake from the Publix deli. It said, "Happy Birthday Pops," written on it. The cake was good, but not as good and moist as what I would have made. Dh was happy that ds remembered that was it favorite cake - it is definitely the thought that counts. So, I have copied these recipes and will be making the cake next week. Thank you all so much for taking the time to find the recipes for me. You all are the greatest!
