Carrot Cake Recipe

So I have come to the realization today as to how much I LOVE carrot cake. Instead of spending a ridiculous amount of money buying some from work every other day, I should perhaps find a way of making me own, right?

The thing is tho, part of the issue is to find hwo to make that delicious topping which is I believe, made with cream cheese??

Anyone have a good recipe out there? I have found loads on the web but those deep dark, grandpa recipes are the best

the internet is a beautiful thing

1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, softened

1 tsp. vanilla

1 pkg. (16 oz.) powdered sugar (about 4 cups), sifted

Make It

BEAT cream cheese, butter and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.
ADD sugar gradually, beating until well blended after each addition.

Coconut-Cream Cheese Frosting
Prepare as directed. Stir in 1/2 cup toasted BAKER'S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut.
Recipe makes enough to fill and frost 2 (8- or 9-inch) cake layers.

My favorite: 2C. whole wheat flour 2C white flour 2C brown sugar 2C white sugar 4 tsp cinnamon 4 tsp nutmeg 4 tsp baking soda 1 tsp salt. Mix all dry ingredients. 6 C grated carrots (about 8-10) 2C vegetable oil 8 eggs 1 C buttermilk. Mix wet ingredients. Add a little at a time to dry, scraping bottom of mixing bowl often with spatula to get up flour clumps. Mix just until blended. Pour into 4 greased and floured and papered cake pans. 325 degrees for 30 minutes then check for doneness. Icing: Softened butter 2# Softened cream cheese 6# Powdered sugar, sifted 8C Vanilla 2 Tbls. Beat butter till light add sugar Beat in cream cheese in small pieces to avoid lumps. While beating on low add vanilla. Scrape often. You will probably want to half this recipe but I make it for large gatherings. When the cake is cooled, ice it. Chop walnuts and press into the sides of cake for decoration.
