A simple, but completely delicious and frosting smothered carrot cake. Doesn't include yucky stuff like pecans or pineapple (which are fine on their own, but not in carrot cake).

- 1 cup white sugar

- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 3 cups grated carrots
For the Frosting
- 1 cup butter , softened
- 2 - 8 ounces packages cream cheese , softened
- 4 cups confectioners' sugar

- In a large bowl, beat together eggs, applesauce, oil, sugars, and 2 teaspoons vanilla.
