My Mom always buys the Namaste brand spice cake mix, and makes it into a carrot cake with raisins and cream cheese frosting. It's good, and it freezes well, too (she makes the mini-loaves so I can always have something handy).

What a great-looking recipe. Can't wait to try it..... I miss carrot cake, too.

I know you weren't thinking of mixes, but I have to echo Ang's recommendation. The Namaste spice cake has the carrot cake variation right on the bag and it is beyond awesome! I too added raisins, plus walnuts, and used plain ol' Pillsbury cream cheese frosting. Heaven.

I have made this a few times. I use Pamela's Baking Mix, which already has Xanthan gum. I would think you could also use Featherlite or some other flour mix and then add 1 tsp Xanthan gum.

This makes one layer - double for a two-layer cake or 9 X 13 (a 9 X 13 takes about 45 - 50 minutes to bake). Also, I just buy the frosting (read labels) but I have a recipe (at home) for frosting - it takes cream cheese, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar. If you want I can post it as well.

Carrot Cake

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

pinch of salt

2/3 cup Pamela's Baking mix

1 cup shredded carrots

mix ingredients well, then add carrots

bake in greased 8-inch round

350 F for approximately 30 minutes

toothpick should come out clean

cool and frost with

Cream Cheese Frosting
