  • Mix sugar, oil, applesauce, and eggs together in a large bowl until well blended. Stir in flour, cinnamon, baking soda, vanilla extract, and nutmeg; mix well. Stir in shredded carrots and pour batter into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can use two 9-inch round baking pans if you'd like. Baking time would be 35 minutes.

Substitute vegetable oil for canola oil if preferred.

I frost this with Cream Cheese Frosting II from this site.
