Recipe Ingredients for best carrot cake

1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups olive oil
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped nuts
3 cups freshly grated carrots
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/2 ounces cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup icing sugar

Recipe Directions for best carrot cake

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F / 176 C

  2. Use two round 9-inch cake pans, one 9x13 pan or 36 muffin cups for this recipe. If using round cake pans, lightly grease and place a circle of parchment in the bottom of the pan for easy removal. Use paper lining cups if making cupcakes.

  3. Cream sugar and eggs in a large mixing bowl with an electric beater or stand mixer. Add oil and vanilla and beat just until smooth.

  4. In a separate bowl combine gluten-free flour mix, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Whisk to combine. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat until blended.

  5. Stir in grated carrots and nuts. Pour the batter into prepared pans.

  6. Bake in preheated oven for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. For muffins, reduce baking time to 30-35 minutes or until they pass the toothpick test. Cool on a wire rack.

  7. While cake or muffins are cooling place butter, cream cheese and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and beat on high until smooth. Add powdered sugar and beat until smooth and creamy.

  8. When cake is cool frost.
