Carrot Cake by Aunt Wendy

As promised, here is the world's greatest carrot cake recipe. It's been in Aunt Wendy's family for 28+ years so you know it's a keeper! I DARE you to make it and enjoy every bite. Here's to packing on the holiday pounds :)

3 Cups grated raw carrots
2 Cups flour (All Purpose Flour)
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 Cups cooking oil
4 eggs
1/2 Cup chopped pecans

Beat all the above together and then add the eggs one at a time. Then add 1/2 cup nuts. Bake 9x13 pan for 35-40 minutes (8 inch round cake pans take a little longer, just keep checking with toothpick, till it comes out clean) in a 350 degree oven.

1 (8 oz.) Pkg Cream Cheese
2 teaspoon vanilla
1 Pkg powdered sugar (2 Cups)
1/2 stick Butter
*you can double the icing recipe to make sure you have plenty

Let cake cool then ice and enjoy!
