1. Grate several large carrots (5 or 6), or chop up into 1 inch pieces and put it into the food processor. I like to use the food processor because it\u2019s quick and easy, but hand grated is fine too!

8. Bake in pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes +/- a few. The cake should be dark golden brown, and slightly firm, but a little \u201cgushy\u201d. It should no longer feel wet.
