Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting (duh!)
The longest part of this process (aside from the baking) is the grating of the carrots. Don't buy the pre-shredded. I hear it doesn't work out so well.
1 1/4 cups veg oil
2 cups white sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tbsp baking soda
2 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 cups grated carrots (about half a bag of carrots for me)
1. Preheat the oven to 350. Grease and flour a 9 x 13 cake pan
2. In a large bowl beat the eggs, oil, sugar and vanilla together. Mix in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Stir in the carrots. Pour into the pan.
3. Bake 40-50 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes in the pan then put it on a rack.
4. Frost the crap out of it.
