Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 40 minutes
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1/2 cup apple sauce (you can use oil also if you don't want the "lower fat" version)
- Substitute for 3 Eggs. (Use 3 table spoons of Flaxseed and 9 Tablespoons of water. Mix separately from wet ingredients and add in after)
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 3 cups shredded carrot
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon or pie spice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all of the wet ingredients and the sugar in a bowl until well mixed. Add the carrots and mix.
In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Once both bowls are ready, mix together to form batter.
Pour into a 9x13" cake pan. Put into oven for about 40 minutes. It is done when a toothpick comes out clean. If you use other sized pans (rounds, for example) be sure to adjust your baking time.
Let cool and enjoy! I just put powered sugar on mine but you can be more creative.
Feel free to also add other goodies, like coconut, walnuts, or whatever sounds good to you.
