Introduction: How to Make a Carrot Cake

This instructable will teach you how to make a delicious and moist carrot cake. Soon I will have another instructable on how to decorate the cake.

Step 1: Gather Your Ingreadiants.

You will need

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 eggs

1 cups canola oil

2 cups grated carrots

1 cup well-drained crushed pineapple

1 cup chopped walnuts

Step 2: Drain the Pineapple

Drain the pineapple, save 2 tablespoons of the juice.

Step 3: Give the Carrots a Little Shave

Use a cheese grater to shred the carrots. You need 2 cups of carrots. This may take up to 5 good size carrots.

Step 4: Mix

In a large bowl beat the carrots, eggs, walnuts, pineapple and the 2 tablespoons of juice until the mixture is well blended.

Step 5: Combine the Dry Ingredients

In a smaller bowl mix together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and the salt.

Step 6: Stir Everything Together

Mix the flower and carrot mixtures together until the mixture is thick.

Step 7: Bake

Transfer into a greased 13-in. x 9-in baking dish. Bake at 350 F for 40 minuets. A good way to tell if the cake is done is to put a toothpick into the center of the cake and if it comes out clean it is done.

    I love carrot cake but I have only had it from a bakery. I never thought to make one at home! (Or cupcakes!). You have encouraged me...looks easy and I love to bake! Thank you!
