  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 9×13 inch pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine grated carrots, flour, white sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and optional “nutmeg”. Stir in eggs, oil, 1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and optional: chopped pecans and raisins or dried blueberries. Spoon batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
  4. To Make Frosting: In a medium bowl, combine powdered sugar, cream cheese, 1/2 cup unsalted butter and 1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla. Beat until smooth. Spread on cooled cake. Optional top with chopped pecans.

Note: For carrots, a processor with cheese grater attachment works great. If you don’t have a food processor and hand cheese grater works well.
