  • 11/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 large eggs
  • 11/2 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups freshly shredded carrots (6 medium)

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 23 teaspoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 13×9-inch baking dish. Set aside.

  3. Add the flours, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Stir in the vanilla.
  4. Stir in the walnuts, carrots and coconut. Pour batter into the prepared dish.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes or until cake is set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cake cool completely.
