The batter:

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 1 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 3 cups of grated carrots
  • 1 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)

Cream cheese frosting:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Making the cake:

  1. Firstly, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch cake pans or one 9×13-inch baking pan.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  4. Then, gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, stirring until combined.
  5. Fold in the grated carrots and chopped walnuts (if using).
  6. Then, pour the batter into the prepared pans and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Allow the cake to cool completely before frosting.

Making the cream cheese:

  1. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy.
  2. Gradually add the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, and beat until well combined. Then, mix in the vanilla extract.
  3. Finally, frost the cooled cake with the cream cheese frosting, and decorate with additional chopped walnuts or shredded carrots, if desired. Don’t forget to refrigerate your cake.

Here are some tips for making a delicious carrot cake:

  1. Use fresh, high-quality ingredients. This includes fresh carrots, good-quality flour, sugar, and spices.
  2. Grate the carrots finely. The finer the grate, the more evenly distributed the carrots will be throughout the cake, which will result in a moist and flavorful cake.
  3. Don’t overmix the batter. Overmixing can cause the cake to become tough and dense. Mix the ingredients just until they are combined.
  4. Add nuts and/or raisins for texture and flavor. Walnuts or pecans are a popular choice, but you can use any nuts you like. Raisins will add a chewy texture and a natural sweetness to the cake.
  5. Use cream cheese frosting. Cream cheese frosting is a classic pairing with carrot cake, and it balances the sweetness of the cake. Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature before making the frosting so that it is smooth and easy to work with.
  6. Chill the cake before serving. So, chilling the cake for a few hours or overnight will help the flavors meld together and make it easier to slice.

With these tips, you should be able to make a delicious carrot cake that is moist, flavorful, and a crowd-pleaser.
