Cake ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cups shredded carrot (between 5-6 full-sized carrots)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 ¼ cups canola, vegetable, or coconut infused cannabis oil
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Frosting ingredients

  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 ¼ cup icing sugar
  • ½ cup pecans
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream


  • 2 9-inch cake pans
  • Parchment paper
  • 2 mixing bowls
  • Whisk
  • 1 small bowl
  • Rubber spatula


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  2. Line the bottom of 2 9-inch cake pans with parchment paper.

  3. Grease the exposed portions of the parchment paper in the bottom and sides of both pans.

  4. Whisk the baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and flour together in a medium-sized mixing bowl.

  • In another bowl, combine the oil, vanilla, sugar, and eggs then whisk them together until smooth.

  • Use the spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl, which should dislodge any chunks that are sticking to the bottom, and then slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ones by dumping ¼ of the powder mixture in at a time.

  • Blend all of the ingredients together with a whisk or an electric mixer.

  • Now slowly and gently fold in the nuts and the carrots until they are evenly distributed throughout the mixture.

  • Pour half of the carrot cake batter into each of the baking pans.

  • Cook the carrot cake in the oven for 40 minutes, or until it gets a nice golden-brown colour around the edges, and the top is springy to the touch.

  • Allow the cakes to cool for at least 15 minutes before putting everything together.

  • Combine all the icing ingredients aside from the pecans in a small mixing bowl.

  • Remove the first cake from the baking pan and set it on a plate or platter.

  • Ice the entire top of the carrot cake with approximately 1/3 of the icing.

  • Remove the second cake from the baking pan and set it carefully on top of the first.

  • Use the remaining icing to cover the rest of the cake until none of the spongy goodness is exposed, and smooth it out with a silicone spatula for a really fancy look.

  • Scatter the pecans evenly over top of the carrot cake.

  • Your delicious carrot cake is now ready to serve and enjoy!
