do you crave carrot cake? i do!

Nothing, in my opinion, is better than a good (and healthy!!) carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. It's just the perfect combination of everything. Here's my favorite recipe for it. With the applesauce, carrots and raisins, this definitely has to count as a health dessert. Make, and enjoy!

2 3/4 C flour
1 tsp salt
3 tsp baking soda
1 C sugar
3 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
4 eggs
3/4 C veg oil
15 oz. applesauce
3 C shredded carrots (approx 1 sm. bag)
1 C raisins

2 C powder sugar (sift to get out clumps)
1 tsp vanilla
2 packs cream cheese
1/2 C butter/margarine

Mix all dry ingredients. Beat eggs and add oil, sugar and vanilla. Add applesauce and carrots. Mix with dry ingredients. Pour into greased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 for 45 min. I can smell it now....
