6 Steps

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Step 2

    In a medium bowl, whisk the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg and salt together. Set aside.

    In a large bowl with an electric beater, in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl with a whisk, cream the granulated sugar, brown sugar and oil together.

    Add the shredded carrots, eggs and roasted walnuts to the sugar and oil and mix. Add the flour mixture to your wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.
