Carrot Cake

I have made this cake twice this week (for 2 different parties) and got rave reviews and many requests for the recipe, I thought I would post it here too:

Carrot Cake
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
3 cups shredded carrots
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs

Heat oven to 350. Grease and lightly flour your pan(s). Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add carrots, oil, and eggs. Beat with an electric mixer until combined and pour into pans. Bake for 30-35 min for 2 round pans or 35-40min for 13x9 pan

Cream Cheese frosting:

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 tsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups Powdered Sugar

Beat everything but powdered sugar on low speed until smooth. Gradually add in powdered sugar until smooth and spreadable.
