Ingredients

Cake:

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • 3 eggs

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 ⅓ cups gluten-free all-purpose baking flour (such as Cup4Cup™)

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups grated carrots

Cream Cheese Icing:

  • ½ (8 ounce) package cream cheese

  • ¼ cup butter, softened

  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.

  2. Beat white sugar and vegetable oil together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy; beat in eggs, 1 at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and mix.

  3. Combine baking flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a separate bowl; mix into sugar-vegetable oil until batter is smooth. Fold carrots into the batter; pour into the prepared baking pan.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Allow cake to cool completely, at least 30 minutes.

  5. Beat cream cheese and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer; beat in confectioners' sugar, a little at a time, until icing is smooth and creamy. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and beat well. Spread icing onto cake.
