The best carrot cake you'll ever have!

Who doesn't love carrot cake?! This is my grandma's recipe, so I give props to her for the recipe! It is SO good and the BEST carrot cake I've had. It's not sickening sweet or too carrot-y; just the right amount of everything and SO easy! Let me know what you guys think!

·         3 cups grated carrots
·         1 ½ cups vegetable oil
·         2 cups sugar
·         ½ teaspoon salt
·         1 teaspoon vanilla extract
·         4 eggs
·         2 cups flour
·         2 teaspoons baking soda
·         1 teaspoon cinnamon
·         1 cup pecans
Grate carrots and pour oil over the carrots; set aside. Mix eggs and sugar; add flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon; add carrot mixture, stir in vanilla and pecans. Pour batter into two greased and floured 8 inch cake pans. Bake at 350°F for 40-45 minutes. Let Cool.

Cream Cheese Frosting
·         1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
·         1 1 pound box powdered sugar
·         Milk, if needed (to loosen)
·         1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix all ingredients and add milk if needed. Assemble cake and ice. Sprinkle chopped or whole pecans for decoration. Enjoy!
