1c vegetable oil
1c whole-wheat floor
1c white flour
1 1/2tsp baking soda
2c grated carrots (3 large carrots)
1 1/4c grated apple (2 large apples, peeled)
1/2c chopped walnuts or pecans
4oz (125g) cream cheese
1c icing sugar
1/2tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Blend the sugar, oil, and eggs together. In a separate bowl, sift the whole-wheat and white flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon together and mix to combine. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix together. Add in the grated carrots and apples as well as the raisins and nuts. Pour into a lined or buttered 9×13 baking pan and bake for 35-40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
Combine ingredients for the icing and mix very thoroughly until it is smooth. Spread over the cake once it has cooled a bit.
Then try to wait until your guests arrive – seriously, it’s impossible!!!
