This is an incredible side dish for Thanksgiving! Much too fattening for the rest of the year, but a great addition to your holiday meal.

  • Cream together butter and brown sugar. Add egg and water; blend well.

  • Mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon in a separate bowl; blend into the creamed butter mixture. Stir in the grated carrots and mix thoroughly. Pour evenly into prepared tube pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour.

Cook's Note

Without a ring mold or bundt pan, this pudding will not cook evenly throughout.

My mother taught me this recipe and in fact it appears almost vervatum in the 1958 "Thoughts for Buffet" cookbook on pg 211. It uses 2 eggs (separated with whites stifflybeaten and folded in as last step) no water but 2 Tb lemonjuice and 1 Tblemon rind.itis delicious.my mother taught me to bake it with the mold (I use bundt pan) sitting in pot of water in theoven. I would liketo try a healthier version with less butter sometime. Read More

This was very good...but it was nothing like pudding. It turned out like carrot bread or cake. We sliced it and put butter on it. Read More
