Carrot Cake


Java Dock.jpgAhhhhh Java Dock. This was a coffee house that was in
my home town of Port Washington Wisconsin. I have
been going there since I was a sophomore in
high-school. I love so many of there treats. I was
able to wrangle a few of my favs out of the owner
before they sadly closed their doors. Here is my
friend Kurtis’ favorite treat from the old dock.

2 cups flour

1 cup raw sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

4 eggs

4 cups grated carrots

1 cup canola oil

For cream cheese frosting:

4 tablespoons butter, softened

6 ounces cream cheese

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 cups sifted powdered sugar

Combine dry ingredients and set aside.

Beat eggs slightly, then add carrots and oil. Mix
together the wet and dry ingredients, stirring until
well combined.

Pour batter into greased 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Bake
in 350-degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes.

In mixing bowl, blend together butter and cream
cheese until well combined and smooth. Add 1 cup
powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Add remaining
powdered sugar and beat until smooth and fluffy.
Spread over cooled cake.
