Jolee's Kitchen: Apple Carrot Cake

Summer is a time for gathering, and we think you should let your guests eat cake! This week we are sharing a light and tasty desert - Apple Carrot Cake. This recipe is so easy to make and you most likely you already have all these ingredients in your house.

Perfectly paired with Grenache Rosé. Enjoy! 


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups vegetable oil
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 ½ cups carrots, grated
  • 1 ½ cups apples, chopped
  • 1 cup walnuts (omit or substitute with a nut of your preference)



  • Combine sugar, eggs, vanilla, and oil.
  • Sift together dry ingredients and stir into liquid mixture.
  • Add carrots, apples, and nuts. Pour batter into 9 x 13-inch pan and bake in 325℉ oven for 60 to 70 minutes. Test to make sure it is done with toothpick.
  • Frost with cream cheese frosting if desired. I like to skip the frosting and just dust with powdered sugar.
