~The Making of A Carrot Cake~

Today I made a delicious carrot cake...here's the recipe! :-D














Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing
2 c. sugar
2 c. flour
2 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
3 t. cinnamon
1 1/2 vegetable oil (we used smart balance)
4 eggs
3 c. grated carrots
1 c. chopped nuts (optional)
1 t. vanilla

Cream Cheese Icing
1/2 c. melted butter
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 t. vanilla
1- 1 lb. box powered sugar (add to taste)
Sift together sugar, flour, soda, salt and cinnamon.







Stir in oil.









Add eggs...

(only four! ;-D )




...one at a time, mixing well after each addition.






(Grating the carrots.)





Add carrots, nuts and vanilla, mixing thoroughly.


























Pour into a floured and greased 13 x 9 x 2" cake pan. Bake in 350* oven for 30 minutes.


Note:
We used two 9" round cake pans and baked them until a toothpick inserted came out clean... approximately 40 minutes.

Cool in pan, spread with Cream Cheese Icing.





Note:
We used a butter cream frosting to reduce calories and cholesterol. :-) It was quite good!

And here is the finished project! :-)

Hope you all have a blessed day!

In Christ,
~Chloe~ :-)






"If you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to each one's work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your stay on earth;
knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ."
1 Peter 1:17-19
