Trust me on this one . . . anything that starts with “Mom” is the bomb! My mom should have opened her own bakery – we would be ka-BLILLIONAIRS by now!!!
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp cinnamon
Sift together all these ingredients and set aside.
- 2 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 cup vegetable oil, (canola is preferred)
- 4 eggs
Beat all these ingredients well, and slowly add flour mixture. Add the remaining ingredient.
- 3 cups grated carrots
- 2 cups chopped pecans (or walnuts)
Pour batter into 2 round cake pans, greased and floured. Bake at 375 – 400 degree’s for 35 – 40 minutes.
Cream Cheese Frosting:
- 1 8oz cream cheese, soft
- 3/4 box powder sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 stick butter
Cream butter and cream cheese, then add sugar and vanilla and beat well.
Note: Let cakes cool before frosting and make sure to get some of that cream cheesiness in the middle layer too! The less sugar used the better, apparently this recipe is a ‘consistancy’ sort of thing. You want it thick enough to spread without pulling the cake apart while doing so.
No Kidding – this is a YUM, YUM, YUMMY!!!!
