Amazing Carrot Cake!
I highly recommend that you make this cake ASAP!!!! Okay so I saw this cake on the following blog: Lovin' From the Oven. She raved about the cake sooooo much that I decided to make it. Let me tell you, this cake is AMAZING! I have made Carrot Cake before but this one was so moist, sooooo good, so not too sweet, not too overpowering but OMG! All I can say is OMG!
So here's what I did. I used fresh carrots for this. I am guessing that you can use the carrots that come already shredded but I highly recommend shredding them yourself. I bought a bag of carrots and just started shredding the old fashioned way with a grater. I am sure there is a easier way but this is how my mom, grandmother, aunts...you get the picture did it and it brought back soooo many memories of when I helped my grandmother and mother cook. I love memories!
30-40 Mins later.....TA-DA! Oh and did I mention that it smells sooooo good!
And after you put the frosting on the cake...it may look like this..YUMMY!
I love it! My new favorite recipe!
OMG, Almost forgot to include the recipe:

•3 cups shredded carrot

Mix all ingredients well with a wooden spoon. Pour into desired pan and bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes (more or less depending on pan size) until a toothpick comes out clean.
For the cream cheese frosting:
•8 oz cream cheese (only use Philadelphia brand!)
•1 cup powdered sugar
•2 tsp vanilla

Beat all ingredients well and spread on top of cooled cake.
Thanks for checking it out! Feel free to ask me anything or leave me comments!
