 Ingredients List

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1½ cups shredded carrots (packed)
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • ½ cup oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • Your choice of frosting (cream cheese is really good on carrot cake)


Preheat oven to 350F and lightly grease an 8 x 8 cake dish.
Whisk all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
In another bowl except for the frosting mix together the other ingredients until well combined. Pour the mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until combined, and thoroughly moistened.
Spread the cake batter evenly into the cake pan and bake 30 – 30 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
