    Carrot Cake

    Really yummy! Thanks be to God for baking this for us. Another delicious treat from the best baker in town :-). Mr. Gab.

    1 ¼ cup & 1 Tbsp of All Purpose Flour
    ½ cup of white Sugar
    ¼ cup of Brown Sugar
    1 tsp of Baking Soda
    2 tsp of Cinnamon
    ½ tsp of Salt
    ¼ tsp of Nutmeg
    ¾ cup of Vegetable Oil
    2 Eggs
    1 Tbsp of Vanilla Extract
    1 tsp of Grated Orange Zest
    1 ½ cups of Shredded/ Grated Carrots
    ½ cup of Raisins/ Walnuts Whatever you like.

    For the frosting:
    3 oz of Cream Cheese, at room temperature
    ¼ cup of Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
    2 cups of Powdered Sugar
    1 tsp of Vanilla

    1) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
    2) Spray a 9-inch square baking pan with non stick cooking spray. Lay the bottom with parchment paper and set aside.
    3) In a bowl toss together the carrots, raisins/ walnuts and the 1 Tbsp of flour until all of the carrots and raisins are coated with the flour.
    4) In a large bowl mix together all of the ingredients until well combined. Add the carrots and raisins/ walnuts and mix until they are well incorporated through the batter.
    5) Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for about 30 minutes or until when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
    6) When the cake is ready, let it cool in the pan for a few minutes but then take it out and let it cool completely on a wire rack.
    7) Once the cake is completely cooled, make the frosting by simply mixing all of the ingredients together until you get a nice thick frosting. If you need to, add a little more water by the teaspoonful to get a spreadable frosting consistency.
    8) Adorn the cake with the cream cheese frosting and let it set for a few minutes until the frosting begins to harden. Dig in whenever you like!
