Paula, I have this recipe and it is so easy and sooo good and you don't have to shred any carrots!

I'll have to make this for my dear hubby as he loves Carrot Cake but hates it when they put raisins in it. This has no raisins.

This was the original carrot cake as I knew it back in the 50's. Haven't been able to find the recipe until now. Thanks.

Having trouble finding the #3 jars of carrot baby food. Food Lion used to carry them, but lately I haven't been able to find them anywhere. Anyone have any suggestions.
