BEST CARROT CAKE EVER

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.

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! The Test Kitchen
