Full Answer

Make super moist carrot cake with cream cheese frosting by combining 1 box of yellow cake mix, 1 package of vanilla instant pudding and pie filling, 2/3 cup of orange juice, 1/2 cup of mayonnaise and 4 eggs. Stir in 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, and fold in 3 cups of grated carrots, 1/2 cup of golden raisins and 1/2 cup of chopped pecans. Pour into a cake pan, and bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.

Whip together 1 8-ounce package of softened cream cheese, 1/2 cup of softened butter, 3 cups of confectioners' sugar, 2 tablespoons of orange juice and 1 tablespoon of grated orange peel. Frost the cake once it cools.

Another good recipe uses 1 can of drained unsweetened pineapple along with the carrots, raisins and walnuts, and it replaces the mayonnaise with vegetable oil. Instead of using instant vanilla pudding mix, you can use 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 1/2 cup of packed brown sugar and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.
