Karrot Kake

I LOVE carrot cake (it's a tie between carrot cake & a really good cheesecake for favorites). I love this recipe from my mom. It takes some time but it's well worth it.
This pic soooo does not do it justice. It is heavenly.

3 C grated carrots
2 C sugar
2 C flour
4 eggs
1 1/2 C veg. oil
1 (8oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp applesauce
1 C chopped nuts

Beat carrots, sugar, flour, eggs, veg oil, and softened cream cheese together. Add baking soda, salt, cinnamon, vanilla, applesauce and chopped nuts. Bake in a 9X13 greased and floured pan @ 350 for 55 minutes, or until clean toothpick.

Cream cheese Icing
