Carrot cake


Through the years I tried many carrot cake recipes but never found one that came out perfect each time. A family friend K, passed this recipe on to my mother and she shared it with me. I found that it always turned out perfect. It has been my favorite carrot cake recipe for the past 20 years. It is a very basic recipe and you can add walnuts, raisins or whatever you want.


2 cups white sugar

4 eggs

1 1/2 cups vegetable oil

2 cups white flour

3 cups peeled and grated carrots

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Use a tube pan or two round cake pans. Lightly grease and flour pan.

In mixing bowl put sugar and eggs, mix well. Turn mixer speed to low and add oil. Mix until well combined. Add dry ingredients. Remove from mixer and fold carrots in. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 45 minutes. Cake is done when toothpick comes out clean. Remove cake from oven. When cake is completely cool remove from pan.

Let cake cool completely and dust with powdered sugar or frost with cream cheese icing.

  4. I absolutely love carrot cake and this recipe looks great. I find restaurants have a wide “variety” in taste and texture and am pretty picky about what makes a good one. Still trying to convert the wife. She’s ok with a taste or two but I’m the one that cleans the plate clean! We have made a few at home and looking forward to trying this one.
