    Default Carrot cake

    Did a mini test run of this recipe to see how it would turn out to see if I wanted to make it for Thanksgiving. It turned out well, so I'm going to make it Thursday. Thought I'd share. Healthy, it ain't.

    Carrot Cake

    2 cups flour
    2 cups sugar
    2 tsp. cinnamon
    2 tsp. baking soda
    1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
    4 eggs
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    3 cups grated carrots

    Sift together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, & baking soda. Mix oil, eggs, & vanilla, stirring until well blended. Add dry ingredients to oil mixture and stir until blended. Add carrots. Divide into 3 pans and bake in layers at 325 for 30 minutes.

    Icing

    1 8 oz. cream cheese
    1 lb. confectioner sugar
    1 1/2 stick butter, melted
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    1 cup pecans, chopped

    Sift sugar. Add cream cheese, butter, and vanilla gradually. Cream until light & fluffy. Add pecans. Spread between layers, on top, and on sides of cake.

    I sometimes add a small can of crushed pineapple to carrot cake and it makes it incredibly moist and tasty. It's my mother's "secret" ingredient.
