How to make it
- Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Butter and flour two 8x2-inch round cake pans and line with parchment paper, set aside.
- In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon. Set aside.
- In the bowl of electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the eggs on high speed until light and fluffy. Decrease the speed to medium and add the oil, sugar, and salt. Mix to combine. Decrease the speed to low and gradually add the flour.
- Remove the bowl from the mixer and fold in the carrots and walnuts with a rubber spatula.
- Divide the batter evenly among the pans. Spin the pans to level the batter. Bake for 45 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 20 minutes before removing from pans to cool completely.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together cream cheese, sugar, and zest. Start on low speed and then gradually increase speed to med-high and beat until smooth and fluffy.
- On medium speed add the butter and mix until smooth. Add the vanilla and mix until combined. Do not over beat
