2 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
2 c sugar
4 eggs
1 c salad oil (e.g. Crisco)
15-17 oz junior baby carrots

Whipped Butter Cream Frosting for Carrot Cake
4 tbs flour
½ c solid Crisco
1 c cold milk
1 c sugar
½ c margarine (or butter)
1 tsp vanilla

Mix together w/mixer, pour into greased 9x13 pan. Bake about 1 hour at 350 degrees.

Frost when cool.

For the frosting: Whisk flour and milk together in a sauce pan. Cook over low-to-medium heat while stirring constantly until it becomes a thick paste. Set aside to cool. Beat butter, Crisco, sugar and vanilla very well. Add to cooled flour/milk paste and beat with mixer until fluffy. (There should not be any “sugar grains” left when you test-taste.

Personal Notes:
Weze's carrot cake is a Constable/Stiles family favorite. When Susan and Tom got married, each had a legacy carrot cake recipe - each very different from the other, and both delicious. This cake is hugely popular with kids!
