you know I try to shop healthy...

I go and buy all these carrots and nobody eats them so, Carrot Cake it is!! That's one way to get bata carotene in them! This recipe is so easy its only 3 steps

In your "wet" bowl
place 4 eggs,
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil,
1 Tbl. vanilla,
3 cups shredded carrots.

In your "dry" bowl put
2 cups flour
2cups sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

combine the dry bowl into the wet bowl
and mix with a spatula
just till blended

into a greased and floured tube pan
and bake 350 for 55-60 min till toothpick
comes out clean

Its not a high cake,
but super moist and flavorful.At this point you can slice and like a quick bread and smear it with cream cheese or apple butter or you can frost it.

 cream cheese frosting
