Chocolate Carrot Cake

Chocolate Carrot Cake

1 box of chocolate cake mix (I used a Chocolate Fudge flavor)

1 small package instant chocolate pudding mix

4 oz. cream cheese, brought to room temperature

1 cup milk (I used lactose free milk)

3 eggs

1 tsp cinnamon

3 cups shredded carrots

 ½ cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350F and spray cake pans with cooking spray. I used a 13x9 cake pan but you could do cake rounds too (this should be enough for 2 thick layers or 3 thinner layers).

In a large bowl, combine cake mix, cream cheese, pudding mix, milk, eggs and cinnamon. Beat with mixer on low speed until all the ingredients are incorporated (about 30 secs) then increase speed for 2 mins. Stir in the remaining ingredients.

Pour into cake pans and bake 25-30 mins. 

Cool before frosting. Store in refrigerator. Enjoy!
