Zed's Birthday Carrot Cake

This is a half recipe. It is not low-fat. I make it in a 7" springform pan. Zed said it was perfect.

1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1 ts cinnamon
1/4 ts cloves
1/4 ts salt
1 cup flour
3/4 ts baking soda
3/4 ts baking soda
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
2 cups grated carrots

Beat sugar and eggs till light-colored. Add oil and beat some more. Add everything else and stir thoroughly. Cook at 350 degrees for at least 45 minutes (this makes a tall cake, in your oven it may take a bit longer). Let it cool and then ice it.

Icing: beat 4 ounces neufchatel (or cream) cheese, 4 tablespoons butter, 1 ts vanilla, 1-3/4 cup of confectioners sugar.
