Hi, Nancy, I was wondering, can you give me the recipe for a carrot cake made in a 12 in. square 3 in. deep baking pan?

The Carrot Cake project on this website was made in 2 9 in. round pans, and makes about 10 cups batter. That is about what you would need for one 12 in. square cake layer. For future reference, we have a reference chart for batter amounts needed for each size baking pan here on the website!
