Pre-heat oven to 325 degree. Grease (Pam/Butter/etc) a 13x9 baking pan.
Take butter and cream cheese out of refrigerator to warm to room temperature.
Sift (or mix well) dry ingredients (flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt) together.
Mix wet ingredients (sugar, eggs, vegetable oil, vanilla extract (1 tbsp) and applesauce) together in a larger bowl. Add Dry ingredients and carrots to bowl with wet ingredients. Mix just until dry ingredients are incorporated. (Do not mix too much!)
Pour mixture into baking pan and bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out dry.
After cake has cooled, mix confectioners sugar, cream cheese, butter, and vanilla extract (1 tsp) icing together and ice the cake.
I prefer to grate the carrots myself as store grated carrots can be dried out.
