Yummy Carrot Cake

Cake Ingredients:
4 eggs
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup apple sauce
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice or pumpkin pie spice
3+ cups grated carrots

Frosting Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter softened
8 ounces cream cheese
4 cups confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. To make cake...In a large bowl, beat together eggs, oil, white sugar, and 2 teaspoons vanilla.  Mix in flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and spice.  Stir in carrots.  Pour into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. 
  4. To make frosting... In a medium bowl, combine butter, cream cheese, confectioners sugar and vanilla.  Beat until smooth and creamy.  
I made this for Jelissa's Birthday.  It was quite delightful.  We took pictures of it BUT I left my camera at my Mom's House.  I will post it when I grab it.  You really should make it.  Consider it health with all those carrots in it.  You can eat the whole cake.
