  • 1 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 ½ cups grated carrots about 4-6 carrots, depending on size
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 cups flour
  • ¾ cup walnuts chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x5-inch loaf pan with a parchment paper sling or spray with baking spray.
  • Whisk the sugar, eggs, oil, milk, and vanilla together in a large bowl. Stir in the grated carrots.
  • Sprinkle the baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and ginger over the wet ingredients. Add flour and walnuts, then stir by hand with a spatula or wooden spoon until combined.
  • Transfer the batter into the prepared pan, then bake for 55-65 minutes until a skewer or knife inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes before turning out of the pan to cool the rest of the way on a cooling rack.


  • Freezing: You can freeze the entire loaf or slice it first and freeze individual slices for up to 3 months. Thaw on the counter before serving.
