Today is my mom’s birthday. She is a special person, always doing what she can for all of us. She doesn’t ask for anything. The least I could do was make her a cake.

2 cups carrots, grated
1 cup oil
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
1/4 cup almonds, chopped
In a blender, mix together the carrots, oil and eggs. Transfer to a bowl and add the dry ingredients. Carefully fold in the nuts. Put batter into a 9″ cake pan and bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes. Top with cream cheese icing and nuts.
