- Peel the carrots or scrub them thoroughly. Chop the ends of the carrots and grate them into a large measuruing cup. It is faster you use fat carrots.
- Mix all the wet ingrediants together in a large bowl. Use a large spoon, not a blender.
- Seperately, mix the dry ingrediants together in another bowl.
- Add "dry" mixture to "wet" mixture and mix well.
- Grease the 9x13 pan.
- Pour the batter into the pan.
- Bake at 350°F (175°C) for 50 minutes. You should be able to stick a toothpick into the center and have it come out dry.
- I used to say to put the cake in an 8x12 pan. This was a mistake caused by me forgetting how big my pan is.
- I used to say to add water. The cake is less mushy without it.
- I used to say bake for 30 - 40 minutes. The cake wasn't always done by then.
- Carrot cake is very healthy, so you can eat it for breakfast without feeling guilty.
