Carrot Cake

I've made this cake for the holiday's and it's always delicious. We had a get together the first part of August to celebrate our friend Jon's birthday and the 25th birthday of my youngest, Anna. It was also the day before school started so we included a "Back to School" portion to the night. Fun was had by all - I made this cake in my standard 9x13 pan and it came out better. This time I used a disposable pan (so someone could take it home) and it wasn't quite deep enough, so some batter ran over and it didn't rise as well as before. But I'm posting it anyway because it's delicious!!!!!

    Preheat oven to 350F.  Blend together the oil, vanilla, vinegar and sugars.

    Over this bowl sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.

    Stir these together well.

    Add the grated carrots and chopped walnuts.


    The batter will be thick.

    Pour into a greased 9x13 pan and bake for 35-45 minutes,  until a toothpick in the center comes out clewan.

    The top of the cake will be dark brown but keep an eye on it the last few minutes. Allow to cool before frosting.

    I used a store bought Cream Cheese Frosting (that is vegan). This was for our family celebration - here's the finished product.
