Carrot Cake

I only did half the recipe and made it in a 8x8 inch pan so its not as tall.
4 eggs
1 1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cups white sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
3 cups grated carrots
1 cup chopped pecans

1/2 C butter softened
8 oz cream cheese softened
4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees . Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan.
2.In a large bowl, beat together eggs, oil, white sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Mix in flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Stir in carrots. Fold in pecans. Pour into prepared pan.

3.Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 50 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.

4.To Make Frosting: In a medium bowl, combine butter, cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Stir in chopped pecans. Frost the cooled cake.
