My Grandmother(Nana) gave this recipe to my mother more than 50 years ago. Of the many carrot cake recipes that I have, this one is my favorite, yet it's the simplest, without all sorts of other stuff in it. You can add nuts if you like, but I don’t; I like the cake just as it is, with no extra fruit or nuts. This is Rosemary’s(my lil sis)favorite, and mom baked it every year for her birthday until she passed on July 10.2011. Guess I will be the one to bake it for her now. RIP mom!
