Serves: 1 cake
One fabulous carrot cake!
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon of sea salt
  • 2 ½ teaspoons of cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon of cloves
  • ⅛ teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1 ¼ cups of vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 cups of grated carrots
  • 1 cup of walnuts, roughly chopped
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and line two 9-inch pans with parchment paper and generously grease the sides with butter.
  2. In a small bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Set this aside.
  3. Now you’re ready to make your cake. In your stand mixer or in a bowl, mix the oil, sugar and vanilla. Add the eggs and beat for a couple of minutes, or until the mixture is light and fluffy. While the motor’s running on low, add your flour mixture, carrots, and walnuts, and mix just until it comes together — don’t overmix.
  4. Pour into your pans, and bake for 40 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean. Let the cakes cool in the pans.
