{Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting}

This used to be one of my favorite cakes growing up, I remember my dad always making it. I haven't had it forever and it totally hit the spot. I am not a huge fan of the walnuts in mine so I left them out this time.

4 eggs
1 1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
3 cups grated carrots
1 cup walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x13 inch cake dish.
In a large bowl beat together the eggs, oil, sugar and 2 tsp vanilla. Mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Stir in carrots and fold in walnuts. Pour in prepared baking dish. Bake for 40-50 minutes.


1/2 cup butter
8oz cream cheese
4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Mix all together until smooth, Spread over top of cake once it is completely cooled.


  1. Always a great choice in my opinion.

  2. Mmmm...I can taste this right now.

  3. I just made carrot cake this week too. Yours looks every bit as good and that cream cheese frosting is the perfect touch. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd love it if you'd come by and link your cake up.
