Carrot Cake

This is my favorite carrot cake. I found the recipe here and took all the suggestions from the comments and made some adjustments.

Carrot Cake

4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup applesauce
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3 cups grated carrots
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour cake pans.

In a large bowl, beat together eggs, oil, applesauce, sugars and vanilla. Mix in flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir in carrots. Fold in pecans. Pour into prepared pan.

Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.

Frost with cream cheese frosting, drizzle with caramel sauce and top with chopped pecans.
