2 cups sugar
1-1/4 cups vegetable oil
1 cup craisins
1 cup chopped pecans
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg


1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
3 cups confectioners' sugar

In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Combine dry ingredients; stir into the fruit mixture.

Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 325° for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
