Carrot Cake

My favorite birthday cake with all the best birthday wishes baked inside.

Preparation Time:


1-3/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
2-1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking-soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 cups shredded carrots (5 to 6 medium)
1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts

Cream Cheese Frosting
One 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
5 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla


Heat oven to 300 degrees. In mixer bowl, combine sugar, oil, and eggs; beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir together flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add to oil-sugar-egg mixture; beat 2 minutes more. Stir shredded carrots and walnuts into batter; mix well. Pour batter into greased and floured 15 x 10 x 1-inch pan or three 9-inch round cake pans. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched with finger. Cool cake completely.

For frosting, combine all ingredients and beat until light and fluffy. Spread between layers and on top and sides of cake.
