Baking Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°F for metal and glass pans. 325°F for dark or coated pans.
Grease sides and bottom of each pan with shortening or oil spray.
Flour lightly. (Use baking cups for cupcakes).

Empty contents of carrot and raisin pouch into a small bowl.
Add 1 1/4 cups of hot tap water into bowl with carrots and raisin mixture; set aside for about 5 minutes.

Blend cake mix, oil, eggs and carrot and raisin mixture from Step 2 (including any unabsorbed water) in a large bowl. Do not add any additional water. Beat by hand until well blended (about 50 strokes).
Pour batter in prepared pan and bake immediately. For cupcakes, fill baking cup 2/3 full.

Bake in center of oven at 350°F following chart below. Add 3-5 minutes bake time for dark or coated pans. Cake is done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
