Auntie’s Carrot Cake

Here’s a delicious carrot cake recipe that is easy to make. My 92 year old Aunt Nobie gave me this recipe which has been in the family for over 50 years. She shared this with me when I got married 46 years ago in hopes that I would become a good baker! The carrot cake stores well in the refrigerator for up to a week.  A great “make ahead” dessert  – Judy Sugiyama,  Account Executive
