My Grandma Ruth's CARROT CAKE


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup wesson oil
  • 3 cups carrots
  • 5 eggs (separated)
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1-2 cups pecans

Preheat oven to 350. It take 40-50min to bake. I mix all the dry ingredients and wisk them together. I add the oil and egg yolks and mix well. I then beat the egg whites until fluffy. I fold them into the batter. Then I fold the carrots and pecans into the batter. It is really a simple cake to make. It is also a very heavy cake with lots of ingredients. It is quite delicious!!! One of my faves!!

Cream Cheese Icing
  • 2 8oz cream cheese
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 lb powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Beat together cream cheese, butter, and flavoring. Then slowly add sugar. I like more cream cheese because I like to actually taste it in the icing instead of just sugar. TFL!!!
