  • Beat the oil and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the oil mixture before adding the next.

  • Stir flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl; beat into the wet mixture. Fold grated carrots through the batter, mixing just enough to evenly combine. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Moist carrot cake. I cut the sugar in half and used half oil half apple sauce. Would be great with cream cheese icing. If making it again I would add more cinnamon. Read More

Good recipe. Needs a bit more flour or less oil to make a great batter. Added orange zest to add some flavor. Read More
