I have made this cake for many years, my daughter Katrina loves it as well as the many people I have made it for over the years."

Ingredients

Preheat Oven at 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 8-9" cake pans.

1) 2 cups of regular sugar
2) 1.5 cups of vegetable oil
3) 4 eggs
4) 2 tsp baking soda
5) 2 tsp cinnamon
6) ½ tsp nutmeg
7) ½ tsp ginger
8) 1 tsp salt
9) 2 cups flour (1 c. white, 1 c. whole wheat)
10) 1 cup sweetened coconut (even better if it's toasted)
11) 3 cups grated carrot
12) 1 cup chopped walnuts


Instructions

1) Combine the first 8 ingredients in your large Cuisinart mixing bowl. Using the beater attachment, mix until nice and smooth (about 3 minutes).

2) Add the last 4 items and mix on low until the ingredients are incorporated (don't overmix).

3) Pour batter evenly into two cake pans and bake 45 – 50 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

Frost with Cream Cheese Frosting:

Frosting:

8 oz. cream cheese – room temp
½ c. butter – room temp
½ c. solid shortening – room temp
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups confectionery sugary +/-

Combine cream cheese, butter and shortening and mix until nice and smooth. Add vanilla, mix well. Gradually add powdered sugar till smooth. If too stiff, add little milk or cream - if too loose add more sugar.

Frost the cake after it has completely cooled – enjoy. ZERO calories after you cut into it ---- they magically fly into the air so enjoy.
