Slow Cooker Carrot Cake
I found this recipe in my Grass Roots magazine. It's guaranteed to be moist and delicious, they say: : "This is golden food, real cake. Dark, moist and gone before I could get a third piece."
Throw these ingredients into a bowl in the order they are listed:
3/4 cup near melted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups of self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups of peeled and grated carrots - about 2 large carrots
3/4 cup raisins OR sultanas OR walnuts OR pecans
Mix well using a fork or wooden spoon - NOT a mixer. Place the mixture into a greased round cake tin that will fit in your slow cooker. Put the tin into the slow cooker and cover it will a few paper towels. Cook on high for 2 - 3 hours. You'll have to monitor it in the last hour and stop the cooking when it's cooked.
When the cake is cool, they suggest icing it with passionfruit icing, mix together :
3/4 cup soft butter
1 cup icing sugar
or you could use the delicious cream cheese frosting. If you don't know how to make this let me know and I'll post the recipe for you. I think I'd like this cake with a little bit of butter and no icing.

I do too, Debbie. I'm buying a slow cooker just so I can cook this cake, + some other fine slow cooked foods.

gonna short out my keyboard. I really like carrot cake, and i think i drooled while readung this recipe. Sounds wonderful.
How deep should the tin be? I have never used self rising flour so i am unsure how much the cake will rise...

I just measured my cake tins - I'd use any one between 2 and 3 inches. LOL @ the drooling.
We have two common cake flours - self-raising flour and plain flour. I think plain flour is your all purpose flour. self raising flour has a rising agent in it. do you have something similar?

Oooo that sounds good! Thanks Bethany!
Yes that is what self rising flour is, it is flour with a rising agent in it. Melissa you can get it in any grocery store.
