  • 1 Box Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix Pillsbury
  • 1/2 Cups Brown Sugar
  • 2 Cups Carrots
  • 1 Cups Walnuts
  • 1 TB cinnamon
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cups oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 TB vanilla


  • Preheat your oven to 350
  • Empty the box cake mix into a bowl.
  • Add brown sugar and cinnamon and mix well
  • Add grated carrots and chopped walnuts and mix till everything is evenly coated.
  • Add water, oil and slightly beaten eggs. Mix till well combined. About 2 mins. You don't have to worry about over-mixing.
  • Butter a 9x13 baking dish or you can use two 9 inch round cake pans if you want to do a double layer cake. If you're using round cake pans make sure to line them with parchment paper so your cakes will release from the pans.
  • Put the batter in your pans and bake following the directions on the back of the box.
  • Bake for 34 to 38 mins for a 9x13 pan and 29 to 33 min for two 9 inch pan.
  • Frost with your favorite frosting. I love cream cheese frosting.
