Preheat oven to 325F. Stir dry ingredients except sugar together. In separate bowl, mix oil, sugar and egg until sugar dissolves. Add into flour mixture and mix thoroughly. Fold in carrots. Pour into pan or cupcake liners. Bake about 35 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.


Mix softened butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and slowly add powder sugar, beating until smooth. Frost.

*The icing is great with a touch of orange zest.
