My Grandma Carolyn is almost 90 and she still makes this carrot cake. It is moist and so flavorful! She baked it in a tube pan and frosted it with chocolate frosting as did my mom. I think that's because this is how my dad likes it. I like it with cream cheese frosting myself and usually bake this in a 9x13 pan and frost it with my homemade cream cheese frosting.
