This is a recipe I got from my mom. Where she got it I have no idea, but I do know, the resulting cake in this recipe is delicious. You absolutely should try it. I mean it has carrots in it people, so it has to be healthy. Right?
Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
First, the cake
2 Cups Sugar
2 Cups Flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 1/2 Cups vegetable oil
3 Cups grated carrots
1. Sift the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.
2. Make a well in the middle and pour in oil and un-beaten eggs.
4. Add grated carrots and mix well.
5. Pour into a 9x13 cake pan (I always spray mine with non-stick cooking spray)
6. Bake at 350° for 40-60 minutes
And now, the icing on the cake.... Actually, cream cheese frosting
(don't frost the cake until it has cooled completely)
1/4 Cup margarine, room temperature
3 oz cream cheese, room temperature, (not fat free/low fat)
2 1/4 Cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Chopped ~ as finely as you so desire ~ Nuts (I use walnuts)
Cream together the margarine and cream cheese. Once smooth, add in powdered sugar and vanilla.
Frost cooled cake, then sprinkle with chopped nuts
There you have it an easy, yummy, dessert!
And I totally got sidetracked eating a piece of this delicious cake and forgot to take a picture of it! I guess you'll have to make it yourself to see the yummy carrotty inside!
