Carrot Cake

Carrot cake was one of my favorite recipes to make with my grandmother growing up. Now we did not always see eye to eye or see each other but when we saw my grandmother it was all about potato soup and carrot cake (our 2 favorite things to make). I have not made this recipe since 2007 when I had my first born Kristopher. My second born, Kailee, has been really into learning how to bake as of lately so I figured what better recipe to start with then something my grandmother and mother showed me sooooo many years ago when I was her age.

You Will Need:

2 Cups Organic Flour
1 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Organic Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Organic Nutmeg
1/8 tsp Organic Ground Clove
3 Organic Pasture Raised Eggs
1 1/4 Cup Organic Apple Sauce
1 1/2 Cup Organic Sugar
1 tsp  Baking Soda
1 tbsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Real Salt

Cream Cheese Frosting: 

8 oz pkg. Organic Cream Cheese
1 stick Organic Butter
1 1/2 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar

Blend together your eggs, sugar, and applesauce

Add vanilla

Once blended add your dry ingredients

Blend until well incorporated 

Grate your carrots, this honestly took us forever because stupidity we used BABY CARROTS!

Fold in carrots

Pour even amounts into your cake pans

Time to make your frosting; add cream cheese and butter into your kitchenaid mix well

Add vanilla and powdered sugar until the flavor is to your liking (I added the amount above... I do not like super sweet frosting) then I folded in the nuts

Spread onto cake

Put in fridge until frosting is set
