My carrot cake recipe is slightly different however even if it was the same the amount of powdered sugar on the frosting is entirely too much and icky sweet. I use no more than 2 cups . A lb is a little more than 4 cups. I add another 3 oz. of cream cheese and some fresh lemon juice and zest. It makes the fluffiest slightly lemony frosting. Try it and you'll never go back to using a whole lb of powdered sugar again.

It was ok, I just think that it needs more salt in the batter. Not my fav.

I make this omitting the buttermilk and vegetable oil, instead I add 1-1/4 cup of applesauce. It’s delightful and a little less in calories
