  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 13x9-inch baking pan.
  2. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
  3. Blend oil, sugar, eggs, and carrots in a blender, stopping to scrape down sides, until creamy and smooth, about 1 minute. Pour puree into a large bowl, then whisk in flour mixture until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Transfer pan to a rack to cool, about 1 hour.
  5. Stir together milk, chocolate, honey, and butter in a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth, thick, and reduced to about 1 1/8 cups, about 10 minutes.
  6. Pour frosting into a metal bowl and set in a larger bowl of ice water. Stir frosting until cooled and thickened, about 5 minutes. Frost cake evenly and cut into 12 pieces to serve.

The cake is very moist and not too sweet. My family enjoyed it! If you like a lot of icing then double the icing recipe. What the recipe calls for is a very thin layer on a 9x13 cake.

I made it for a Brazillian friend who had family visiting. They enjoyed it very much but said I should double the chocolate frosting! I loved using the blender instead of a stand mixer. Can chop...
