Homemade Carrot Cake

IMG_464705105This is my guy’s all-time favorite cake, and his birthday was yesterday, so we had cake! It is from the ‘ol red and white checkered Better Homes & Gardens cookbook I used to learn to cook in our first years of marriage.

Carrot Cake

2 c flour

2 c sugar

1 t baking powder

1 t baking soda

1 t cinnamon

3 c carrots, shredded

1 c oil

4 eggs

Oven 350 degrees. Combine the dry ingredients and set aside. Blend the last three ingredients, introducing the dry slowly. Mix till well blended. Pour into 2 round 9 inch greased cake pans and bake for 30-35 minutes, until the cake springs back at your touch. Cool ten minutes in pans, then turn out until completely cool. Frost with cream cheese frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting

8 oz cream cheese

1/2 c butter

2 t vanilla

41/2 – 43/4 c sifted powdered sugar

Combine all ingredients, blend well and spread over cake. Will cover a two-layer cake.
