Carrot Cake TNT
 
Carrot Cake TNT

1-1/2 cups salad oil-I use Wesson Oil
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 cups flour
2 cups finely grated raw carrots
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspons cinnamon
1 cup nuts

Mix oil and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Add flour, soda, salt and cinnamon. Add carrots and last add nuts. Bake at 350 in 9x13' pan for 40 minutes or until done.

Cream Cheese Frosting:

8 oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese-I soften it in the microwave
1 lb. or 2-1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 stick margarine-I use Blue Bonnet
2 teaspoons vanilla

Mix all together. Spread over carrot cake when the cake has cooled. I put chopped pecans over the icing when the cake has cooled down.

This is a wonderful moist cake and it is the only kind of carrot cake that I will make.

Thanks so much. I'm a lover of carrot cake, but have always been afraid to try it. Maybe I'll try it for the first time

A friend made me a 5-layer carrot cake for several birthdays - she adds golden sultans, chopped up pineapple, and chopped walnuts to it - it's heaven!!!!!!!

deeppit - I'm so craving a piece of your cake I can't stand it - we NEVER have any sweets in the house because we just don't eat them - but right at this moment I'm in pain for lack of sweets! :wacko:

I swear if I just had some cream cheese I would make the frosting and eat it!!!

My DH likes raisins..I am not a big fan of them though.

I'm wondering how many carrots it takes to get 2 cups? I'm guessing a lot.

I don't know how many carrots it takes to get 2 cups. The next time I make it..I will count the carrots and let you know, ok?
