Grandma's Carrot Cake

This is a family recipe for my husband's favorite cake. He asks for it as his birthday cake every year! It is moist and delicious.


2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. allspice
1/2 cup vegetable oil (I use Canola.)
1/2 cup applesauce
4 eggs
2 cups carrots, grated
1 cup gerber carrot baby food
1/2 cup pecans, chopped

Mix first six ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add oil and applesauce, mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add carrots and pecans, mix until distributed throughout batter. Pour into prepared baking pans (greased & floured). Bake at 350 degrees for 32-37 minutes. Cool completely. Frost with Cream Cheese Frosting.
