|Mom's Carrot Cake with orange glaze.|
Mixing the buttermilk-and-baking soda into the batter.
Adding the grated carrots and walnuts.
Fresh-squeezed orange juice.
4 eggs (beaten)
1 1/2 C vegetable oil
1 t lemon extract
1/3 c buttermilk
3 C grated carrots (raw)
2 C sugar
1 t cinnamon
3 C flour (sifted)
2 t baking soda
1 C chopped walnuts
Beat the eggs then add the sugar, oil and lemon extract. Sift cinnamon into the flour. Add to egg mixture and beat well. In a separate bowl mix the baking soda with the buttermilk and fold into the egg mixture. Add carrots and nuts. Pour into greased and floured tube pan at 300 degrees for 1 hour and 30 minutes. While it's baking make the glaze. When the cake is done take it out of the oven and pour the glaze* over the cake as soon as it is taken from the oven (right over the cake still in the pan). Give it a minute, it'll absorb. Cool then take the cake out of the pan.
