½ tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 ¼ cup of olive oil
1 cup organic raw sugar

CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
8 ounces Cream cheese
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla

OR you can try this DELICIOUS sour cream drizzle!
2 cups of powdered sugar
8 ounces of sour cream
MiX well and drizzle over top of cooled cake
You can use 2 - 9” cake tins or cupcake/muffin tin! I LOVE doing this cake as a cupcake because they freeze great and make the perfect dessert to pop out for company! This is how I baked them on the Morning Mix on WDRW (Augusta, GA)
*Mix together the oil, sugar and the vanilla
*Add shredded carrots
*Add together in a separate bowl: the first four ingredients
*Mix dry ingredients and then (1) egg. Alternating between the dry and egg. Mixing all the while.
*Don’t over mix.
Place the batter evenly into greased tins or into the cupcake tin.
Bake for 32-35 minutes for the cupcakes
Bake 9” 35-38 minutes for cake
Cool completely before frosting
