Ingredients

For the brownies:

  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots

For the glaze:

  • 2 ounces room temperature cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x9” pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Stir together oil, sugar, and egg. Stir in vanilla, cocoa, cinnamon, salt and ground ginger. Slowly stir in flour.
  • Stir in grated carrots.
  • Pour into prepared pan and bake 25-28 minutes. Cool before frosting.
  • To make frosting: Whisk cream cheese and powdered sugar. (If your cream cheese is too hard to whisk, you can use a hand mixer.) Add milk and vanilla. Drizzle over brownies. Note: glaze will not harden much, so don't stack them!
