Carrot Cake

I'm not sure if I ever shared this recipe with my readers before, but it's such a good one, especially with Easter on the horizon.

My friend makes the best Carrot Cake, so what better time to share it!

Carrot Cake

2 Cups All purpose Flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
3 cups grated carrots
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups sugar
1 /2 cup walnuts (chopped)
4 eggs

Grease and flour three round 9" pans.  Sift dry ingredients.  Add all other ingredients except eggs.  Add eggs one at a time.  Mix well.  

Bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Cool 5 or so minutes before removing from pan.  Cool completely before icing.

1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
1 box confectioners sugar
1/2 stick butter
2 teaspoons vanilla

Cream the butter and cream cheese together.  Add sugar and vanilla.  Ice cake and top with chopped nuts.

I love carrot cake. I make it every year for Easter. The recipe I have says something about being healthy. ha! (I guess they figure since it contains carrots [a vegetable], it must be healthy ... I think they're conveniently forgetting the massive amounts of vegetable oil and sugar called for!)
