Halloween Carrot Cake

This year I have been trying to make healthier choices, so for this Halloween I decided to incorporate carrots.  The vegetable is a beautiful bright orange, and I had a huge bag of fresh carrots from my grandma’s garden.   Fresh grown carrots are better than candy any day of the week.  I found a fun carrot cake recipe and whipped this up in the kitchen this evening.


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 cups grated carrot



  1. In a large mixer beat the eggs.
  2. Add the vegetable oil, sugar, vanilla extract
  3. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  4. Add the grated carrots.
  5. Bake at 350F for 40-50 minutes
  6. Let cake cool and frost with cream cheese frosting.  Garnish with peeled carrots.
