Be sure to use small tender carrots - not the big tough ones. It makes a difference!

Oh, I thought you had tried this one. Hum...don't know if I will try it or not. The last 2 years I have just fixed myself an angel food cake.

Let me know if it is any good. My Coop does an awesome job with Gluten free bakery goods....except their carrot cake. I was so disappointed

I love carrot cake and have tried a number of recipes and haven't liked any of them I sure hope this one works. Most carrot cake recipes don't have the pineapple in them, which I like, so this may be a winner. I will probably try it for my birthday.

I was in a Texas cooking thread I read in yahoo and found this.....just thought I would share!

Gluten-Free Carrot Cake

Pineapple makes this delicious cake extremely moist. Xanthan gum is a
corn-based, gluten-free thickener that can be found on your grocery store's
baking aisle.
SERVINGS: 20
Ingredients:
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 cans (8 ounces each) unsweetened crushed pineapple, drained
4 eggs
3/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1-1/2 cups white rice flour
1/2 cup potato starch
1/2 cup soy flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
3-1/4 cups shredded carrots
1 cup flaked coconut

FROSTING:
4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
1/4 cup reduced-fat butter, softened
2-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
3/4 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a large mixing bowl, beat the sugar, pineapple, eggs and mayonnaise until
well blended. Combine the rice flour, potato starch, soy flour, baking soda,
cinnamon, xanthan gum, ginger and salt; gradually beat into sugar mixture until
blended. Stir in carrots and coconut.
Pour into a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350°
for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack.
For frosting, in a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy.
Add the confectioners' sugar, orange peel and vanilla; beat until smooth. Spread
over top of cake. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 20 servings.
Editor's Note: Ingredient formulas and production facilities vary among brands.
If you’re concerned that your brand may contain gluten, contact the company.
This recipe was tested with Land O'Lakes light stick butter.
