Yummy Carrot Cake

Dh's b-day is Sunday so I am making a carrot cake for him again this year. His fav...

Thought I would share my recipe here with you all.

1 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups grated carrots
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp. vanilla

Combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, sugar and oil.

With mixer running on low speed, slowly add the flour mixture.

Blend in vanilla, carrot and pecans.

Pour batter into a well greased 8 x 12 inch pan.

Bake in 325°F oven for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

When cake is cool, spread with cream cheese icing, below.

Note: Chopped peanuts or walnuts may be substituted for pecans.

This is such a yummy cake...

Here's the Cream Cheese frosting recipe I use with it.

Blend softened cheese and butter in mixer.Blend and whip in the sugar and vanilla. Beat in enough cream to arrive at the right spreading consistency.

So yummy....
