1 3/4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups oil
4 eggs
2 cups flour
2 t baking powder
2 t baking soda
1 t salt
2 t cinnamon
3 cups grated carrots, raw
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour desired pans. Cream sugar and oil until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at at time, mixing well after each addition. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon together. Add to sugar mixture. Fold in carrots and pecans. Bake for 15-25 minutes, depending on the size of your pan, until cake tester comes out clean and the cake springs back when touched. Ice with cream cheese frosting. (Frosting recipe follows our comments. I used a double recipe for the cupcakes.)
