This is one of my Grandma's recipe's. I did alter it just a bit to make it a little more healthy.
2 cups white sugar
1 1/3 cup corn oil (I used 1 cup apple sauce and 1/3 cup olive oil)
3 cups flour (I used 1 whole wheat, and 2 white)
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
3 cups grated raw carrot
1 cup seedless raisins
1 cup chopped nuts (optional, and so I didn't use them)
In a bowl mix sugar, oil and eggs.
Mix next 5 ingredients together and add to mixture.
Add carrots, raisins and nuts.
Bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours. I only had to bake mine 1 hour and 10 minutes.
6oz cream cheese (that's about 3/4 of a cup)
1 cup icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Mix cheese and sugar together, add vanilla and mix well.
Frost cake when still warm.
