  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups grated carrots
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking pan or two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat together the granulated sugar, brown sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
  5. Stir in the grated carrots, crushed pineapple, and chopped walnuts or pecans (if desired).
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan(s) and smooth the top.
  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow the cake(s) to cool completely.
  9. Once cooled, frost the cake(s) with your favorite cream cheese frosting and decorate as desired.


Here are a few tips to ensure your carrot cake turns out perfectly:

  • Grate your carrots finely for a more delicate texture in the cake.
  • Make sure to drain the crushed pineapple well to avoid excess moisture in the batter.
  • If you’re not a fan of nuts, feel free to omit them or replace them with raisins.
  • For a tangy and creamy frosting, use a classic cream cheese frosting recipe.


Now that you have the ultimate carrot cake recipe, it’s time to put your baking skills to the test. Whether it’s for a special occasion or just a treat for yourself, this carrot cake will undoubtedly impress. Enjoy every bite of this moist and flavorful dessert!
