My mom and grandma have been making this cake for years and are famous for it. It’s the only carrot cake I will ever make!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups 2 all-purpose flour

  • 2 tsp 2 baking powder

  • 1 1/2 tsp 1 1/2 baking soda

  • 1 tsp 1 salt

  • 2 tsp 2 cinnamon

  • 2 cups 2 sugar

  • 1 1/2 cups 1 1/2 vegetable oil

  • 4 4 eggs

  • 2 cups 2 grated carrots

  • 1 cup 1 crushed pineapple (I use canned)

  • 1/2-1 cup 1/2-1 walnuts, chopped

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350℉.
  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Beat in the sugar, oil, and eggs. Once well combined and creamy, stir in the carrots, crushed pineapple, and walnuts.
  • Generously grease two 9-inch cake pans with non-stick spray. (You can also use a 9×13 baking dish and add 20 minutes to the baking time)
  • Bake for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Once out of the oven, let cool completely.
  • Top with your favorite cream cheese frosting or use my recipe in this cookbook!
