Kristina’s Carob Cake

Kristina’s Carob Cake

This carob cake is amazing topped with carob fudge frosting! It's moist, filling, and full of flavor. We like it best served with ice cream or a fruit sauce! Keeps well out of the refrigerator for several days. You can make it and then put the frosting on the next day before serving!

One recipe will make a 9×13 sheet pan, or a 9×13 glass pyrex baking dish. You can also use one recipe for two 8-inch round cake pans for a layered cake, or use one 10 inch bundt cake pan!
