It's been too long since I've done a recipe on the blog. And this is a pretty easy, and freakin' awesome one. Sarah's mom made this cake (it's apparently a family tradition) for our wedding. Now we make it anytime we can find an excuse.
Sarah's Awesome Carrot Cake
1c shredded coconut
2c shredded carrot
2ts baking soda
1 small can mandarin oranges (fruit & juice)
Mix everything and pour into 13” x 9”, bake at 350° for ~50min until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. No need to pre-grease the pan.
8oz Cream cheese (softened)
3c powdered sugar
2tbl melted butter
Mix 'em all together. Smear all over cake. Consume with gusto.
