My Yacht Name: Charmed
Yacht Manufacturer: Island Packet
Ingredients: 1-1/2 cups oil 2 cups sugar 3 eggs 2 cups flour 1 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 tsp. salt 1 small can crushed pineapple 2 cups grated carrots 1 cup coconut 1 cup chopped walnuts Frosting: 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 1 stick margarine, softened 1 box powdered sugar 1 tsp. vanilla
Directions: Beat together the oil, sugar and eggs and set aside. Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Beat sifted ingredients into oil/sugar/eggs mixture, a portion at a time. To that, hand stir in the pineapple, carrots, coconut and chopped walnuts. Pour into baking dish and bake 325 degrees for one hour or until done. For the frosting, beat the cream cheese, margarine, powdered sugar and vanilla. Frost when cake is cool.
Comments: This came from a friend of a friend. I call it "Sam's Carrot Cake". Optional, you may substitute two 2.5 oz. jars of baby food carrots for 1/2 cup of oil. Also you may add 1/2 cup of golden raisins. If you want two smaller cakes, one for now and one for later, bake in two 9x9 cake pans. Once frosted, these fit well and freeze nicely in the Glad "13 cups" square plastic containers. Enjoy!

Pressure Cooker Carrot Cake
Number of Servings: more than 8
My Yacht Name: Oro Negro
Yacht Manufacturer: Island Packet
Ingredients: 3 cups grated carrots 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups sugar 2 tsp baking soda 1 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 1 tsp cinnamon 4 eggs 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil 1 1/4 tsps vanilla extract 1 8oz can crushed pineapple with juice 3/4 cup chopped pecans Frosting 3 cups confectioners sugar 1 8oz pkg cream cheese 1/2 cup butter 1 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Directions: Needed: 8qt or larger pressure cooker 2 8x1.5 inch round cake pans 2 1 inch spacers In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon set aside. In another large bowl mix eggs, oil 1 1/4 tsp vanilla. Stir first bowl into second bowl. Then add pineapple, carrots and the pecans. Prepare the pans by greasing and flouring. Pour batter into pans. Pour a little less into one of the pans, this will be the lower pan. Place a 1 inch spacer in the bottom of the pressure cooker, add 4 cups of water and set lower pan on lift. Place a 1 inch spacer on the top of the pan and place the second pan on top of this. Place lid on and seal cooker. Turn high burner to high until the jiggler begins to move then lower heat as low as you can and still keep the jiggler going. Cook for 30 to 35 minutes from the time the jiggler begins to move. Release pressure as per cooker instructions for rapid release ie don't let it sit on the stove until cool. Remove pans to cooling rack. While the cake is cooling make the frosting. Combine confectioners' sugar, cream cheese, butter, and 1 1/4 tsps vanilla. Beat until smooth. Frost the top of the lower cake. Place next layer of cake on top. Frost the rest of the cake.
Comments: This recipe was converted from a recipe that called for a 9x13x2 pan as a way to learn to bake in a pressure cooker. I have the 8 quart Pro-selections cooker they sell at the boat show. If you have a smaller cooker you could do one pan at a time, I believe you would do each for 30 - 35 minutes still but I haven't tried it that way. If you don't have confectioners' sugar but have a blender or food processor you can make your own by grinding regular sugar until it is power fine. If the top of the lower layer of the cake get messed up by the spacer don't worry, you've going to frost it and stick and layer on top of it anyway. The spacers could be just about anything, I've been using bent coat hangers.
Oatmeal Cake
Number of Servings: more than 8
My Yacht Name: Island Spirit
Yacht Manufacturer: Island Packet
Ingredients: 1 1/4 C boiling water 1 C rolled oats 1/3 C butter 3/4 C sugar 3/4 C packed brown sugar 1 t vanilla 2 eggs 1 1/3 C flour 1 t baking soda 1/2 t salt 1 1/2 t cinnamon Topping: 1/3 C butter 3/4 C packed brown sugar 1 C coconut 1 C nuts 2 T water 1/2 t vanilla
Directions: Pre-heat oven to 350. Toast nuts on a cookie sheet for about 7 minutes, stirring once. Set nuts aside to chop when cool. Grease and flour an 8 or 9 inch pan. In a large bowl, pour boiling water over oats & butter and stir till blended. Let stand for 20 minutes. In a medium bowl, beat eggs, then beat in sugars and vanilla. Beat in dry ingredients just until blended. Add to oat mixture, blending by hand, then pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in 9 inch pan for 30 minutes or in 8 inch pan 37 minutes or until done. While cake is still hot, pour on hot topping mixture. To prepare topping, combine ingredients, simmer and stir till blended, and spread evenly over cake. Broil till bubbly, about 1/2 minute.
Comments: I adapted the original recipe by reducing the quantities of butter and sugar in both the cake and the topping by 25% - 30% and still think it is delicious. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Quick and Easy Caramel Sauce
Number of Servings: 6
Added By: Ed & Sue Kelly
My Yacht Name: Angel Louise
Yacht Manufacturer: Catalac 41 Catamaran
Ingredients: 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk Nothing else!
Directions: Take an unopened can of Sweetened Condensed Milk, and peel the label off. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. We use our pressure cooker with a trivet on the bottom to keep the can off the bottom. DO NOT PUT LID ON TIGHT! Keep the can completely covered with water while water is boiling. After 2 hours, remove from heat and let cool.

Warning - do not permit can to become uncovered by the boiling water or it can explode!

The contents will be smooth and creamy caramel. We serve with slices of Fuji apples that have been shaken with water and a little lemon juice to keep them from browning while on table.
Comments: We got the recipe from another cruiser. This can also be used with any recipe needing caramel. It is easy to do multiple cans and they do not need refrigeration until opened!
