• Melt in your Mouth Carrot Cake

    This is a melt in your mouth carrot cake recipe that will become a favorite in your house! It has the perfect blend of carrots and spice, with a lightly sweetened creamy frosting with zip!
    Cake:
    * 2 cups white sugar
    * 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    * 2 cups all-purpose flour
    * 2 teaspoons baking soda
    * 2 teaspoons baking powder
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    * 3 cups grated carrots
    * 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
    * 4 eggs
    * 1 cup chopped walnuts

    Frosting Ingredients
    * 1/2 cup butter, softened
    * 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
    * 4 cups confectioners' sugar
    * 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    * 1 cup chopped Walnuts

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan.

    beat together eggs, oil, white sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Mix in flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Stir in carrots. Fold in walnuts.

    Pour the batter into the prepared pan, bake for 40-50 minutes.

    Allow it cool for about 10 minutes before inverting onto a cooling rack or plate. I generally put some tinfoil onto a cookie sheet and invert my cake onto that.

    To Make Frosting:

    In a medium bowl, combine butter, cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Add in the walnuts, if desired. Frost your cake!

      Hmm, I moved the photo down a bit, it seems it was causing some of the ingredients to go Behind it, oddly enough. The recipe calls for
      # 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
      # 4 eggs

      sorry about the confusion!
