With that classic carrot cake flavor that's simply irresistible, plus the ease of baking that a cake mix provides, you can't go wrong with a simple dessert recipe like this one.

Yields: 24

Ingredients
  • 1 box Spice flavored cake mix (plus ingredients listed on box)
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 cups finely shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
