Louisiana Carrot Cake Recipe

at first the kids said,
"a cake made with vegetables?!?!  no, thanks, mom"
and that soon changed to....
"please, cook all my vegetables like this."

Memaw's Carrot Cake Recipe
Here's the groceries!
2 cup sugar
4 eggs, beaten
2 cup sifted flour
2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tbsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 cup cooking oil
2 cups chopped pecans
2 cups coarsely grated carrots

(Feel free to read the next part with a Louisiana accent....just like my darling, Cajun mother-in-law)

Add sugar to eggs, stir well.  In another bowl combine your flour, soda, salt, and cinnamon; reserve a small amount of your flour.  Add your flour mixture and your egg mixture, alternating but beginning and ending with flour mixture.  Dredge your pecans with reserved flour then fold them and grated carrots into batter.  Pour into 2 circle (greased waxed paper-lined) layer cake pans.  Bake at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes.  After removing from oven let cakes sit for 10 minutes before removing from pans. Cool thoroughly on racks.
