Grease a round cake pan (8 or 9")
In a large bowl whisk eggs. Add remaining wet ingredients. Then add dry ingredients, carrot and pecans. Mix until batter is smooth and all lumps are gone.
Pour into cake pan and place in oven for approximately 1 hour.
(my cake cake took 70 minutes) Or when a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Let cool. Cream the cream cheese with stevia. Spread on cake and serve.

I made this carrot cake for Thanksgiving because I'm trying to go Primal and my parents are both diabetic. I added a little vanilla to the frosting and used Xylitol (powdered it in my VitaMix) instead of Stevia. It was AWESOME! It was even better after sitting for a day or two. Great recipe! - 1/11/12
