Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Generously grease and flour 2- 9 inch cake pans.
  • A 10 inch tube pan works well also.
  • Line with waxed paper for easy release.
  • Combine the oil and sugar. Mix well.
  • Sift the dry ingredients together.
  • Add half of flour mixture to the sugar/oil mixture.
  • Add the rest of the flour mixture with the eggs, beating well after each addition.
  • Add the carrots and mix well.
  • Fold in the pecans. (TIP: before adding the nuts to the cake, toss the nuts around with a small amount of flour so they won't sink to the bottom of the cake)
  • Bake for 1 hour 10 minutes(or until toothpick inserted comes out clean)
  • Cool completely on racks.
  • Remove the waxed paper.
  • Frost with your favorite cream cheese frosting.

    Right up there at the top of my husband's list of "favorite cakes", and with 1 1/2 cups of oil, I'm betting this is wonderfully moist - a "must try" for me...thanks, jett!
