  • 3 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup cake flour
  • 2 cups shredded, cooked carrots (You can also puree the carrots if you prefer)
  • *powdered sugar for dusting and rolling*

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 6 oz. softened cream cheese
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted, softened butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


Cake Roll

  1. Preheat oven to 350F

  4. Beat eggs with a mixer on high for 3 minutes
  5. Add sugar and beat an additional 3 – 4 minutes until pale and frothy

  8. Add wet ingredients and combine.  Do not overmix.
  9. Stir in carrots
  10. Pour mixture onto prepared pan
  11. Spread with a spatula
  12. Bake approximately 15 minutes, making sure it is still soft
  13. While cake is baking, take a clean kitchen towel and sprinkle it generously with powdered sugar
  14. As soon as the cake is finished baking, take it out of the oven and quickly turn it over onto the kitchen towel
  15. Beginning at the short end of the cake, roll with the towel.
  16. Allow to cool for a few hours.  This will help it to keep its shape.
