Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese frosting

Today I am sharing with you the recipe of Carrot cake, which is not made very commonly and also carrot cake was never my favorite but I tried this recipe and I loved it. It was moist, flavourful, and also healthy. I have used cream cheese frosting and walnuts but you can use any nuts of your choice.


All purpose Flour: 2 cups
Granulated Sugar: 2 cups
Eggs: 4
Baking powder: 1 tsp
Baking soda: 1 tsp
Salt: 1/2 tsp
Finely ground cinnamon: 1 1/2 tsp
Carrots (finely ground or grated): 4 cups
Vegetable Oil: 1 cup
Vanilla extract: 2 tsp
Chopped pecans or walnuts: 2 cups

Cream Cheese (softened): 8 ounces
Unsalted Butter (softened): 2 cups
Powdered Sugar: 2 cups
Vanilla extract: 1 tsp
Chopped pecans or walnuts: 1/2 cup


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon powder and salt. Mix everything well and make sure there are no lumps.
  3. In another bowl whisk together eggs, granulated sugar, vegetable oil and vanilla extract. Whisk until throughly combined and then add the dry ingredient mixture prepared above and stir in carrots and chopped nuts. Mix all the ingredients well
  4. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish and pour the batter in it.
  5. Bake it for 45 minutes in a preheated oven. Insert a toothpick and make sure it comes out dry but if it is not clean and dry after 45 minutes then bake it for another 10 minutes.
  6. Frosting: To make frosting, in a mixing bowl, add butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla extract,beat the mixture for about 3 - 5 minutes until all the ingredients are well incorporated and the mixture appears light and fluffy. Stir in chopped nuts.
  7. Let the cake cool for sometime and then evenly spread the frosting over the cake.

Hope you like the recipe and feel free to post any comments or suggestions.
