-------- ------------ --------------------------------
Carrot Cake:
4 eggs
1 1/3 cups vegetable oil
2 1/4 cups sugar
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
20 ounces carrots, finely chopped (about 3 1/4 cups)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup crushed pineapple, well-drained
White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing:
1 1/2 pounds cream cheese, room temperature
2 cups white chocolate chips, melted
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
Chopped walnuts, for garnish

We made this cake in 3 (8-inch) cake pans, but you can use 2 (9-inch) cake pans instead. For 9-inch pans, bake 75 minutes instead of 60. The food processor makes quick work of chopping the carrots.

1. To prepare cake, preheat oven to 350F. Line bottom of three 8-inch round cake pans with parchment paper. Leave sides of pan dryŚno cooking spray needed.

2. Combine eggs and oil in a large mixing bowl. Beat 2 minutes with a mixer on medium speed. Add 1 cup sugar and continue mixing 2 minutes. Add remaining sugar and mix 3 to 4 minutes.

3. Combine flour and next 6 ingredients (flour through nutmeg); add to egg mixture, beating on low speed until blended, about 1 minute. Add carrots, walnuts and pineapple; mix until well combined.

4. Divide batter evenly among pans.

5. Bake 60 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.

6. Cool to room temperature on a wire rack. Run knife around edge of cakes and remove from pans. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

7. To prepare icing, place cream cheese in mixing bowl; beat with a mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add melted chocolate a little at a time, continuing to beat at medium speed. Add butter a little at a time. Scrape down sides of bowl; add lemon rind and beat until combined.

8. Remove cakes from refrigerator. Ice top of one layer. Place second layer on top; ice top. Place third layer on top; ice top and sides of cake. Press chopped walnuts into sides of cake.

Serves 20.
