Here's your cast, what you'll need to make this beautiful cake! I did this at night, my first mistake. Pictures do not come out as nice in artificial light. This is 2 cups of carrots - grated, 4 eggs, 1 cup each of brown and white sugar, 1 cup of vegetable oil, 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 tsp of salt, and 1 tsp each of cinnamon, baking powder, & baking soda. Pre-heat the oven to 350 F!
The Pioneer Woman makes this look much easier. Cracking eggs while taking a picture of it...not an easy task!!! Crack the 4 eggs into a bowl, add the sugars. Cream well!
Add the oil then mix well again. Mine looked like this!
See? Told you. Pour the mixture into your pre-flour&buttered pan. I've used a Bundt pan twice and 9x13 once, the flatter pan tends to cook the cake better IMO.
While waiting mix up your icing. I used a different icing than this recipe, just a mixture of cream cheese / icing / vanilla. A splash of milk helps too if the icing is too thick for your liking. I used too much milk and therefore had enough to cover two cakes. The eaters of the cake didn't seem to mind. You should let the cake cool before icing, but I'm impatient. It doesn't hurt the cake, but it does get a little mushier.
