  • It’s not often that someone says a meal is the fine, but I really do mean it with this one.
  • Almost 600 5-star reviews have been left for this recipe in the last 6 years, and the number keeps going up!
  • This popular recipe was first shared in 2017. I finally decided to bring it up to date with more step-by-step photos and tips to make sure you get the fine results.
  • No doubt about it, you’ll want to make carrot cake from scratch again and again once you know how simple it is.


This recipe has a lot of different parts, but I promise it’s not too hard to make. I’m not going to talk about every element, but here are some important ones:


  • Cumin, ginger, and nutmeg are all ground up and mixed together.
  • This cake tastes great with all three spices, but none of them are too strong.
  • You can, however, add more spices if you’d like.

  • It doesn’t matter what kind of oil you use here; I usually use canola or veggie oil.
  • Plus, you can use coconut oil that has been melted.
  • Just make sure that all of the other ingredients are also at room temperature so that it doesn’t harden.

  • This adds just the right amount of water, making a cake that is moist without being greasy.
  • I never use apple sauce that has been sweetened when I make this dish.
  • If you can only find applesauce that has already been sweetened, just take away 2 to 3 tablespoons of the white sugar.


Brown sugar makes this carrot cake more moist and tasty, so I use a little more of it than white sugar.


  • There are 3 cups of grated carrots in this dish because I don’t like to skimp on the carrots.
  • Make sure to use carrots that have just been chopped.
  • Don’t use a bag of already shred carrots because they are often too dry and thick for carrot cake.

Cream Cheese: 

  • Use a block of cream cheese.
  • If you want to make frosting that doesn’t run, don’t use cream cheese that’s been whipped or that’s been stored in a tub.

How To Make A Carrot Cake

Make The Cake Layers

Step 1

  • Warm the oven up to 180°C/350°F. First, spray two 9-inch round cake pans with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Then, put a circle of parchment paper in the bottom of each pan.
  • This will really help you get the cake pieces out of the pan!

Step 2

A big bowl with a whisk should have flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices, and salt in it.

Step 3

Oil, eggs, brown sugar, white sugar, applesauce, and vanilla extract should all be mixed together in a separate big bowl using a whisk.

Step 4

  • Grate the carrots and add them to the wet ingredients. Mix them together.
  • Putting them in now will make sure they are fully mixed into the batter and keep you from mixing it too much later.

Step 5

  • Put the wet and dry ingredients together and mix them just until they are mixed.
  • Do not mix your batter too much!
  • This can make the gluten grow too much, which can make the cake thick and gooey.
  • That’s not what anyone wants.

Step 6

  • Fill both cake pans with the same amount of cake batter.
  • Tip: Use a food scale to measure out your cake batter if you want the layers to be perfectly even.

Step 7

  • If you stick a toothpick into the middle of one of the cakes and it comes out clean, the cakes are done.
  • Let the cake layers cool a little in the pans, then take them out and put them on a wire rack to cool all the way through.

Step 8

Once the cream cheese is smooth, add the butter and keep mixing until everything is well mixed.

Step 9

  • Last, add the vanilla extract and powdered sugar and mix them in.
  • Stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl if you need to to make sure that all of the frosting ingredients are well mixed.

Step 10

  • Make sure the tops of all the cake layers are even.
  • For this step, you can use a big knife or a cake leveler.
  • I really like this cake leveler. For newbies, it’s also a great choice!

Step 11

Put one of the layers on a cake stand and spread out a little more than 1/2 cup of the filling on top of it.

Step 12

  • Cover the top with the second cake layer.
  • Cover the sides and top of the cake with the rest of the frosting.
  • For this step, you can use a slanted spatula or even the back of a spoon.
  • You can toast some chopped pecans or walnuts and put them on top of the cake if you want to add something extra.
