Grandma Goldies Carrot Cake

Stephanie Morris


Another wonderful recipe given to me by my ex mother in law. Some women don't get along with their mother in laws but mine was wonderful. She was a great cook and she had a loving heart. This recipe is at least 40 years old and was brought to my ex mother in law from a family friend from Arkansas. None of us had ever heard of a carrot cake!
