My daughter and I love carrot cake. I saw the mix while grocery shopping and decided to try and make it taste homemade. The end results looked and tasted like it was made from scratch, and took a lot less time. My neighbor said it was the best carrot cake he had ever tasted!
1 box Betty Crocker Super Moist Carrot Cake mix *
3 large eggs
1/4 cup crushed pineapple with juice
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup packed, grated carrots
1/2 tsp baking_powder
3/4 cup applesauce
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Few gratings fresh nutmeg
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup raisins
3 Tbsp soft butter

* This is my favorite  brand of cake mix. I have used it over 20 years , always with  excellent results.
Step: 1Preheat oven to 350 F

Prepare a 9x2x11 inch baking pan by greasing and flouring, or use baking spray with flour.
Step: 2Place cake mix in a large mixing bowl. Add the raisins, pecans  and baking powder. In a separate bowl, stir together all ingredients except the carrots. Mix on high speed (hand mixer 3 minute) (stand mixer with paddle 5 minutes). Add the carrots and beat briefly to incorporate them.
Step: 3Spread batter into cake pan and smooth to all corners. Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool and frost with cream cheese frosting.

I just edited this recipe and removed the 1/4 cup flour.
The first couple of times I made it, the batter was a bit too thin and the flour was needed. Use your own cooking sense and add a little flour if you think it's needed.
