Tupperware Mini Carrot Cakes Recipe

This is one of my favorite recipes by Tupperware and I make it often! If you have any nut allergies, you can omit the nuts. This is a great recipe to make for parties, family reunions, cookouts and BBQ's, etc. If you are looking for finger foods, this is a good one to try making.

Although the recipe calls for either a yellow or carrot cake mix, I personally think it tastes better using the carrot cake mix.

Tupperware's Mini Carrot Cakes Recipe

Serves 16
Preparation Time: 30 minutes

18.25 oz. package yellow or carrot cake mix
Eggs and oil as required for cake mix
8 oz. can crushed pineapple, un-drained
2 carrots, shredded
2 tsp. Simple Indulgence™ Cinnamon & Vanilla Spice Blend
1/2 cup water
12 oz. container cream cheese frosting
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease bottom and sides of rectangular pan or spray with cooking spray. Peel carrots and shred them using a hand grater. Using an electric mixer and a Saucy Silicone Spatula, blend cake mix, oil, eggs, crushed pineapple with juice, Simple Indulgence™ Cinnamon & Vanilla and water in a Thatsa® Bowl until well blended. Add the carrots and mix until the carrots are fully incorporated. Spread cake mix evenly into baking pan.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely. Spread prepared frosting over cake and sprinkle with Simple Indulgence™ Cinnamon & Vanilla and the optional nuts before serving. Slice cake into small pieces before serving. Cover the cake and store in the refrigerator.
