where I come from you can't get the cake mix with carrots and raisins included in the box.I added a cup of grated carrots and about half cup raisins,it still worked out good ,so I was told.I don't know why we don't have those mixes here.

I use a half cup of grated carrots in my recipe,my Husband loves carrots he says they are good for you.I have never use raisins though ,I wonder does it make a difference with the taste?

Hi Sharon, Just letting you know that the raisins & carrots come in the box of Classic Cake mix.

Had no idea that making a cake from a cake mix was so difficult, seeing all the questions below, buy the book Baking for Dummies!

I feel the same as you do Linda.I'm not much of a baker myself,I'm learning as I go along.There are some easy fantastic recipes on this site,that's why I like it so much.I don't do complicated very good.

would about 1 cup of each carrots & raisins be ok..where I live I can't get the mix with carrots/raisins included

Anglewings on Sep 27, 2013 5:36 p.m.

Mhatton,that is exactly what I done and it turned out great for me.I didn't get any complaints from anyone,and it was all eaten.

Can the raisins be omitted from the carrot cake?

pretzeld on Jan 6, 2012 4:49 p.m.

Aren't you worried about the raisin police coming for you if you omit them?

I am planning on making this cake on the weekend> I think i will put some cinnamon and nutmeg into the cream cheese for a bit more flavour though. Maybe a bit of coconut rum too. :)

Sugar_Cookie on Feb 3, 2010 7:09 p.m.

The carrots and rasins are included in the carrot cake mix. They come in a seperate(s) bag from the mix. I suppose if you wanted to add more of your own you could.

steve melissa b on Jul 26, 2011 3:08 p.m.

Sugar If you wanted to add more carrots would add Cooked fresh or canned Thanks Melissa
