This recipe is from a 1960's cook book and was actually called "Carrot Pudding". We made this in my Home Economics Cooking Class back in the early 70's and has been a favorite since.

Sorry I don't have a picture to post. Couldn't find a photo or recipe close to this one so I'll post a picture next time I make this.

Hope you enjoy!
