My grandma made it for us growing up and I got the recipe from her. This will be the best carrot cake you ever eat.
"I have the exact same recipe and get requests to make it several times a year. Only change to my recipe is I half the oil substituting the other 1/2 with unsweetened applesauce. A little healthier. I have replaced all oil with applesauce before. It works and it's great but it gives too much of a fruity taste to what is supposed to be carrot cake. "- BriteEyesNda805

inchm 1 year agoI baked this recipe yesterday. Unfortunately it's way to greesy for me. I definately have to use way less oil that it requires.
