Ingredients
  

Carrot Cake

  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla flavoring
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups grated carrots
  • optional: pecans for topping

Cream Cheese Icing

  • 1/2 cup salted butter, room temperature
  • 8 ounces full fat cream cheese, room temperature
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla flavoring

Instructions
 

Carrot Cake

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9x13 pan with cake pan release.
  • In a medium size bowl, whisk together vegetable oil and both sugars until well combined.
  • Add eggs and vanilla and whisk until well combined.
  • Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients until just combined.
  • Fold in carrots until well combined. Add batter to prepared baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes. When you start to smell the cake from the oven it's usually a sign that the cake is done. To test the cake for doneness, insert a toothpick in the center and lift out. If the toothpick comes out clean or with a few dry crumbs, your cake is done. Place on counter and let cool completely.

Cream Cheese Icing

  • In a medium mixing bowl or stand mixer, add cream cheese, butter and vanilla. Mix on medium speed until smooth and creamy.
  • Add powdered sugar and continue to mix until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed into a smooth icing consistency. Add on top of carrot cake when completely cool.
  • Optional: Add pecans on top of icing.
