  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups vegetable oil
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 (4 ounce) jars carrot baby food


  • To get started, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and grease and flour a 10x15 inch jelly roll pan. This will ensure that the cake doesn't stick to the pan and is easy to remove once it's finished baking.
  • sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a separate bowl. This will ensure that the ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the cake and will help prevent any clumps from forming.
  • Once the wet ingredients are well combined, mix in the dry ingredients until they are evenly incorporated. Then, stir in the baby food carrots. This will give the cake a moist texture and a delicious flavor.
  • Spread the batter into the prepared jelly roll pan and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Once it's done, allow the cake to cool before serving.
