Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake
3c grated carrots
2 eggs
1/2 c vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
2 heaping tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 c crushed pinapple
1/2 c brown sugar
3/4 c white sugar
1 1/2 c flour

bake at 350 for 45 minutes

I would have put walnuts in the cake, but I didn't have any.  I contemplated using sunflower seeds as a substitute, but C vetoed that idea...and he grated all the carrots for me so...there's always next time for experimentation.

Cream Cheese Frosting
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 c butter, softened
3/4 c confectioners sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

cream together the cream cheese and butter, add the vanilla, gradually stir in the sugar

 I sprinkled almonds on top of the frosting.
