Why I Love This Recipe

My dad's sisters have been living in the US 50 years now. Last time we visited them (some 17 years ago), my aunt Michèle gave us her carrot cake recipe.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 ¼ cups oil
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 cups flour

2 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt
3 cups grated carrots (250 g)

1 stick margarine (113 g)
1 cup sugar (226 g)
8 oz cream cheese (226 g)
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans or almonds (125 g)


Preheat oven 355°F (180°C)

Blend the oil and sugar

Beat in the eggs one at a time

Sift in the dry ingredients

Mix in the carrots

Pour into a greased and floured 13 x 10 in (33 x 25 cm) pan

Bake for 1h15

To make the frosting:
