Carrot Cake

It was my husbands 35th birthday last weekend, and he is a carrot cake lover. So most years I make him a carrot cake for his birthday.  Here is the recipe that I use, inspired by my mother-in-laws recipe. 065


2 cups of flour

2 tsp. of soda

2 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. salt

1 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

4 eggs

1 cup of oil

3 cups of grated carrots

2 tsp. vanilla


In a large mixing bowl, ( I use me Kitchen Aid) cream together the sugars, eggs and oil.  Then sift and add the four, soda, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well, once it is combined add your carrots and vanilla. Mix again and bake at 350 for 35- 45 min.  For a bunt pan bake 350 for 45-55 min.  Let cool and frost with cream cheese frosting.

We like this recipe for the frosting.

2 cups of powdered sugar

8 oz. cream cheese softened

1/4 cup of butter

2 tsp. of vanilla.
