Bet you haven't had this question before...

Hi, kids! I want to bake a carrot cake. It is standard-issue except for the fact that it's half honey and half sugar.

But it says to bake it in a loaf pan. I want to bake it in a shallow 9 X 9 inch cooking dish. I don't want slices, I want nice square pieces.

Is this kind of switch doable without burning or some other problem?

Expert bakers, come on down.

Also, I don't have any cream cheese on hand for the icing. Do you think yogurt would work, maybe if I strained some of the whey out?

Using the 9x9 pan should be OK. It will be thinner than one baked in the loaf pan. It will cook in less time.

While the cake is baking, run out and get some cream cheese.

Watch the cooking times.
The recipe I just found said bake in a 9 by 13 pan for 40-50 minutes. (350°f)
The next one said round 9 inch cake pans for 50-60 minutes.
(300°f)

Then I'd choose another frosting, or none at all. I used to broil a frosting on top of my carrot cake using a mix of butter, brown sugar, and chopped nuts. Delish!

Thank you, Kayelle. I am going to take a crack at that.

You're welcome and I think you'll like it. Sorry, I don't remember the proportions but it is yummy. Don't take your eyes off of it in the broiler!!

Then you best run real fast! You will have to keep an eye on the cake because you are using a different pan size, so wait until your finished cake is cooling before you head out to the store.

You can also make a powdered sugar frosting.
Powdered sugar, butter or margarine, a bit of milk and flavoring of your choice.

Cream cheese can be approximated by straining, and washing the whey from cottage cheese. Then blend the curds until creamy smooth. Complete your icing with the smooth cottage cheese. you could also use creme' fresh, or even mascarpone cheese if you have it.
