JANE's Story

Again, going back to my vintage recipes that have been in my family for years, I spotted an old recipe from the 40's for carrot cake. It was titled THE BEST CARROT CAKE. Well, I figured it was now the 90's at the time and was sure someone probably had come up with a better recipe since then. I was wrong. To date, I have not tasted better carrot cake ever. It's easy and the outcome is amazing. A great spring cake for Easter dinner and a tradition around here...hide it from the Easter Bunny though.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I am acquainted with MANY self-proclaimed "Carrot Cake Experts", so I called in the troops for a little taste-testing on this recipe. I am thrilled to report that by unanimous decision this is, indeed, one of the best carrot cakes ever!

Which side of the grater should I use? (Small or large - not topside or underside lol). Also, Can I cut this recipe in half? How long would I cook it for and in what size pan?

I would call one of the companies that make baking "Stevia" and ask them. I hate feeding anyone splenda since it turns to rat poison in your body.

I would suggest using Splenda. Use the conversion label on the package.
