Carrot cake

Carrot cake

1 1/2 cup cooking oil
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 cups flour
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
3 cups grated carrots
1 cup chopped pecans

For icing:
8 oz cream cheese
1 stick butter
1 box confectioner's sugar
2 tsp vanilla

Beat oil and sugar well, add eggs, beat well. Sift flour, cinnamon soda, and baking powder; blend with egg mixture. Fold in carrots and nutes. Bake at 350 for 1 hour in loaf pan or 30 minutes in layer pans. Baking time may be a little longer- bake until just firm. Mix icing ingredients, ice cake.

Dan's note: more spices (maybe some nutmeg, and/or a little allspice and cloves?) would be good. Rated 7.5/10
