  • 1 Reynolds Kitchens® 13x9 Dessert Pan with Lid and Carrier
  • 3 1/3 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 8 grated medium sized carrots
  • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon of nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 3/4 cups of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of light brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup of plain yogurt
  • 1 cup of vegetable oil

Buttercream Frosting

  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces of softened cream cheese
  • 3 cups of sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons of milk


Step 1

PREHEAT the oven to 375°

Step 2

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt and set aside. Once combined add in the shredded carrots and toss until the carrots are coated. Set the bowl aside.

Step 3

In a separate large bowl whisk together the eggs and yogurt, followed by whisking in the sugars and vegetable oil. Once combined fold the mixture into the large flour bowl until just combined.

Step 4

Next, pour the carrot cake batter into a Reynolds Kitchens® 13x9 Dessert Pan and bake in the oven for 40 minutes. After cooking for 40 minutes on 375° turn the heat down to 325° and bake for 15 minutes. Once it is done cooking remove the pan from the oven and completely cool on a rack.
