Carrot Cake 


This is my favourite carrot cake recipe. It is moist, tasty, and makes a 9×13 cake.

2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg

3 eggs
3/4 cup oil
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 1/3 cup carrots, grated

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9×13 pan.

Beat eggs, oil, vanilla, sugar and brown sugar until well combined. Mix dry ingredients and then add them to the wet. Combine and then stir in the carrots. Bake for 40 minutes.

250 g cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp. rum
1 cup icing sugar

Beat butter and cheese until well combined. Beat in rum and icing sugar. Spread on cake.







  1. Just wanted to let you know that I made this carrot cake for dinner guests over the weekend. It was fabulous. Much lighter in colour than my usual carrot cake recipe and the touch of nutmeg made it special.
