Easy Carrot Cake Loaf



  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
Gradually mix in the dry ingredients until just combined.
Stir in the grated carrots and chopped pecans (if using).
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth out the top with a spatula.
Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing it from the pan and transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
Slice and serve the cake as desired.


You can use a food processor to grate the carrots quickly and easily.
If you prefer a sweeter cake, you can add some brown sugar or honey to the batter.
For a healthier version, use whole wheat flour and replace the vegetable oil with applesauce or mashed bananas.
You can also add some raisins or shredded coconut to the batter for some extra texture and flavor.
In conclusion, this Easy Carrot Cake Loaf recipe is a delicious and simple cake that’s perfect for any time of day. With its moist texture and warm spices, it’s sure to become a family favorite. So why not try this recipe and enjoy a tasty treat with your loved ones?
