My mom has always made the best carrot cakes around!! She always made several of these during the holidays, as she had many friends who always asked for a cake. Her fluffy cream cheese frosting topped it all off.
Cake: Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 9X13 pan. Mix wet ingredients. Add dry ingredients. Bake for 50-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool on rack 1-2 hours. This is a very dense cake.
Frosting: Whip cream cheese and butter together until smooth. Add powdered sugar and continue to whip until fluffy. When cake is cooled, frost cake.
