Step 2: Mix the dry & wet ingredients for the carrot sheet cake batter

Much like other sheet cake recipes, my carrot sheet cake recipe comes together easily. In separate bowls, mix the dry ingredients: Clover Valley All-Purpose Flour, Clover Valley Granulated Sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, Clover Valley Vegetable Oil, vanilla extract and shredded carrots.

This is also a good time to preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Step 3: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients to mix the cake batter

Using a hand or stand mixer, begin gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stopping the mixer to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Batter will be slightly thick. Once the batter is mixed, pour into a prepared 15 x 10 x 1 jelly roll/sheet pan. Spread the batter evenly in the pan.

Bake the cake at 350 degrees for 30-32 minutes.

Step 4: Let the Carrot Sheet Cake Cool and Mix the Frosting

Once the carrot sheet cake comes out of the oven, be sure to let it cool to room temperature. While the cake cools, you can then mix together your frosting. I have a fabulous, easy recipe for How to Make Cream Cheese Frosting. Be sure to include your Clover Valley Powdered Sugar from Dollar General.

Once your cake is cool to the touch, you can then spread the frosting on to the Carrot Sheet Cake. Using a spatula or frosting knife, evenly spread the frosting over the cake.

Step 5: Slice the Carrot Cake Sheet Cake into Squares and Enjoy

Once the cake is frosted, it is ready to slice. If you’re making this carrot sheet cake for an event or a dinner later in the day, feel free to refrigerate it. The cream cheese frosting will harden a bit, so about 30 minutes before serving, let the cake come to room temperature for the frosting to soften.
