Sunday recipe!

It’s been too long since I’ve done a recipe on the blog. And this is a pretty easy, and freakin’ awesome one. Sarah’s mom made this cake (it’s apparently a family tradition) for our wedding. Now we make it anytime we can find an excuse.

Sarah’s Awesome Carrot Cake

3c flour
2c sugar
1c shredded coconut
2c shredded carrot
2ts vanilla
2.5ts cinnamon
2ts baking soda
1ts salt
1.25c oil
3 eggs
1 small can mandarin oranges (fruit & juice)

Mix everything and pour into 13” x 9”, bake at 350° for ~50min until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. No need to pre-grease the pan.

Frosting

8oz Cream cheese (softened)
3c powdered sugar
1ts vanilla
2tbl melted butter

Mix ’em all together. Smear all over cake. Consume with gusto.
