There are just 10 ingredients and only a few short steps. All you have to do is mix the dry ingredients with the wet and pour into a ring-shaped mold. Then, bake for an hour and serve warm.

No it is a very unhealthy cake with 6 eggs and all that Crisco

This carrot ring was almost like carrot cake. It was incredibly moist and so tasty! I would serve it as dessert or a side dish.

Please do not grate the carrots by hand-use a cuisinart! It is so much faster!
