Ingredients

1 cup
butter (2 sticks) cut into pieces
2 cups
sugar
4 large
eggs
2 cups
carrots, grated
2 cups
flour
2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp

FROSTING

1 stick

(8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 tsp

2-3/4 cups
sifted confectioners' sugar

Step-By-Step

1Cream butter and sugar thoroughly with mixer. Add eggs and beat till mixture is smooth and silky, looking like mayonnaise and falls in ribbons from spoon. Beat in carrots.
2Combine dry ingredients, sift and fold into carrot mixture by hand. Add vanilla. Spoon batter into 2 greased & floured 9" pans- no more than 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Cool in pan for 5 minutes then remove to cake rack, carefully.
3For frosting: Put butter and cream cheese in the bowl of a mixer. Process till mixture is smooth and free of lumps. Add confectioner, salt and vanilla. Mix till smooth. To achieve a stiffer consistency, if desired, add more confectioners' sugar or chill.
