  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 3 cups grated carrots (appx. one pound)


Begin by heating your oven to 350-F and preparing two 9″ round cake pans by lining the bottom with wax paper, (do not grease or flour). In a large mixing bowl sift together the flour, sugar, soda, cinnamon and salt. Add to that the eggs, vegetable oil and grated carrots, mixing until well combined. Divide batter evenly between the two cake pans and bake for 30 minutes. (When finished baking be sure and let cakes cool completely before frosting, as the icing will easily melt if cake is the slightest bit warm.)
