Cake:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan. In a large bowl, mix together eggs, vegetable oil, white sugar, and vanilla extract. Stir in flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Add grated carrots, and pecans. Pour mixture into pan, and bake for 40 to 50 minutes.
