carrot cake

I tasted so many times Raz Zeera Gee's carrot cake ( she's my friend here in KSA)... Yummy.. n lama2 falling in love with the cake.. hahaha... But, only tuan rumah jer lah suka sgt carrot cake, but not the kids.. husband so-so aje.. :(.. tapi once a while boleh jugak buat cake ni.. suka2.. dan makan pun lama2 abis jugak... selalunya buat mesti bagi sikit kat kawan atau jiran.. kalau tak, lama jugak nak abiskan duk dlm fridge tu... but for carrot cake lover, u can try this recipe.. worth try i guess.. :D

messy topping.. hahaha.. tak reti buat lah topping2 ni. still learning.. :P

dah cut, ngan ready to ngap! :D
For cake:
1 1/2 cups vege oil (sunflower or mazola)
2 cups white sugar (i only use 1 3/4 cups )
4 eggs
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsps baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3 cups grated carrots
8oz crushed pineapple (Secret is with the juice)- because i dont have pineapple juice at that time, i ganti ngan orange juice... :D still sedap lah.. hihi
3/4 cup chopped pecan/walnut.. also ganti with chopped hazelnut.. yes! still tasted good.. :D
1 1/2 tsps vanila extract

For topping:
Confect sugar to taste
8 ox cream cheese (Phila or Kiri)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 tsps vanilla extract
 zest of 1 lemon :)

Beat vege oil, sugar. Add on eggs each at a time.
Add on powdered stuff bit by bit.
Mix well then add carrots, chopped pecan/walnut and crushed pineapple.
Bake at 375f about 1 hour or until till cook...depends on the oven actually.

For cream cheese: add all and whip...spread on cool cake :)
