Let them Eat Cake!

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

What's your favorite kind of cake? Mine is Carrot! I love the combination of carrots, cinnamon, cream cheese & walnuts!  A slice of carrot cake is perfect with a cup of tea after dinner, and since it has carrots, it is a healthy breakfast choice with your morning coffee!

This recipe for Carrot Cake is simple and delicious, and perfect for all seasons: a summer BBQ, Easter Sunday, or an cool Autumn evening.

 Mix together sugar, oil, & eggs until creamy. Add Flour, cinnamon, baking soda, vanilla, salt and mix together. ( I also add a sprinkle of nutmeg to the batter) Then add the shredded carrots & nuts, I always use my favorite, walnuts.

Bake at 350 for 45 min, and let cool for a least an hour.

You can buy the frosting, but I like to make mine, and with a recipe this easy, why not!!

Cream Cheese Frosting 
1 8oz package cream cheese
1/4 stick butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 or 3 teaspoons milk
4 cups powdered sugar
In your mixer blend together softened cream cheese & butter. Add vanilla & milk. One cup at a time mix powdered sugar into cream cheese mixture. Blend together until creamy & delicious!

Frost cake once cooled & sprinkle frosting with chopped walnuts!
