  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour a 9x5" loaf pan (I used Homemade Cake Release).

  • Step 2

    In a bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg).

  • Step 3

    In a mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy (on med-high speed).

  • Step 4

    Beat in eggs one at a time and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in carrots.

  • Step 5

    With mixer on low, gradually add flour mixture; beat until just combined.

  • Step 6

    Transfer the batter to the pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, approx. 40 to 45 minutes.

  • Step 7

    Let cool in pan for 5 minutes. Turn cake out onto a wire rack, and let cool completely.

  • Step 8

    Frosting: Using mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese, icing sugar, and ½ teaspoon vanilla until fluffy.
    Spread on cooled cake.
