Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish with oil; set aside. In a food processor, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, cloves, and nutmeg; process to combine. Add sugar and yogurt; process until combined.

  • With processor running, add oil and then eggs, one at a time, processing until combined. Transfer to a large bowl; stir in carrots.

  • Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool in pan.

  • Meanwhile, make frosting. With an offset spatula or a butter knife, spread frosting over top of cake. To serve, cut into squares.

Cook's Notes

Frost and serve cake from the baking dish. If you prefer to serve it on a platter, line the dish with waxed paper after brushing with oil; turn out the cake before frosting.
