Carrot Cake Recipe at
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8-inch loaf or ring pan.

FOR THE CAKE: Combine the eggs, sugar, oil, vanilla, and all the dry ingredients in a bowl, then beat until it is a smooth consistency. Stir in the carrots and walnuts. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Turn the cake out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

FOR THE ICING: Beat the butter and cream cheese together until creamy. Mix in the lemon zest and sugar and beat until smooth.

Cover the cooled cake with the icing and serve immediately.
