Another wonderful recipe given to me by my ex mother in law. Some women don't get along with their mother in laws but mine was wonderful. She was a great cook and she had a loving heart. This recipe is at least 40 years old and was brought to my ex mother in law from a family friend from Arkansas. None of us had ever heard of a carrot cake!
