Carrot Cake


1 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup chopped walnuts
3 cups carrots, grated


Mix together oil, vanilla, and eggs in a small bowl; set aside. In a large bowl, combine salt, cinnamon, sugar, flour, baking soda and baking powder; stir in egg mixture. Add nuts and carrots, mixing well. Pour batter into 3, greased and floured 8" round cake pans. Bake layers at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pans for several minutes, then invert onto wire racks to cool completely. Spread icing between layers and over top and sides of cake.

Serves 8 to 10


Beat together 1/2 cup butter, 8 ounces cream cheese, and 2 cups powdered sugar until smooth.
