Recipe Information

Recipe Created By: Captcry


2 cups finely shredded carrots
1/3 cup water, hot to boiling
2 cups flour
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp ground cloves
1 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla


Pour the water on the carrots in large to medium mixing bowl.

Heat oven to 350 °F and grease and flour one 9 x 13 inch cake pan.

Mix the remaining ingredients in with the carrots and beat on low speed, working the sides of the bowl frequently for 2 minutes. Beat on medium speed for another minute and pour into the pan. Bounce pan on the counter to remove air bubbles.

Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean when stuck in the center of the cake. Take out and let cool before frosting


A lemon cream cheese frosting, or vanilla cream cheese frosting is really good if it is safe for you.

Carrots should be finely shredded.
