Mother made this carrot cake quite often when I was growing up. I ran across the recipe a few weeks ago and just had to make it. While eating this cake, I can close my eyes and I'll be right back home in Mama's kitchen! I love this cake, and it's so easy to throw together. Hope you'll give it a try.
