Carrot Cake

Here is the carrot cake recipe that some of you wanted. I made it over the 24th weekend and it was REALLY good! I absolutely love this cake!

2 c. flour 2 tsps salt
2 c. sugar 2 tsps cinnamon
1 1/2 c. oil 2 tsps baking soda
3 cups grated carrots 4 eggs
1/4 c. pecans 1 c. crushed pineapple

Blend sugar, oil, and eggs. Mix dry ingredients and then add to sugar mixture. Add carrots, nuts and pineapple. Blend well. Bake at 375 Degrees for 1 hour.

Cream Cheese Frosting:

2 (8 oz.) pkgs. cream cheese 1 box powdered sugar
1 cube butter 2 tsps. vanilla

Mix all ingredients until smooth.
I cut the frosting recipe in half when I mak a 9x13 cake and it is still more then enough.


  1. mmmm. Wish I was in Snowflake eating good food. I wanted to make this for a last minute dinner with the missionaries, but I didnt have all the stuff. Bummer.
