This carrot cake recipe was my mother's. My mother was one of the best cooks around. On my daughter's 3rd birthday her grandmother made this cake for her and ever since then this is the cake she requests. My daughter is going to be 27 tomorrow so we have been making this recipe for a long time. My mother, her grandmother is no longer with us but her recipe lives on. I think this is the best carrot cake recipe. Hope you think so too. Enjoy. Thank you for letting me share.
