A quick and easy dessert you can make in just 5 steps!

We here at Eatwith can never say no to a good cake – especially one that’s simple and easy to make. This is why we turn to host Gil in Israel’s classic carrot cake recipe. It’s one of the first cakes he learned to make in pastry school and it’s one he still comes back to. Now, he’s sharing how it’s all done with us.

  • 4 oz. Canola oil
  • 9 oz. Sugar
  • 10 oz. Grated carrots
  • 2 oz. Walnuts
  • 1.5 tsp. Baking powder
  • .5 tsp. Ground ginger
  • .5 tsp. Salt
  • .5 Cinnamon
  • 2 eggs,
  • 1 orange zest


  1. In a bowl mix sugar, orange zest, cinnamon, ginger and oil

  4. Add carrots and walnuts to the oil/egg mixture and then combine with flour mixture until fully mixed
