Carrot Cake

Here is my all time favorite carrot cake recipe.

2 cups Flour
2 cups Sugar (white)
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Cinnamon
1.5 cups Vegetable Oil
4 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla
3 cups shredded carrots

Put all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix thoroughly. Make a well in the centre and add all remaining ingredients except carrots. Mix very well. Add carrots and stir well. Pour batter into a 9×13 greased and floured pan. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a rack. While cake is cooling you can make the icing

Cream Cheese Icing
In a food processor combine
1.5 c hard cream cheese (the kind that come in the block)
1c icing sugar
1t vanilla

Blend on high until the mixture is smooth. Do not over blend or your icing will be runny. Put in fridge to set until cake has completely cooled. Spread thickly over cake and serve.
