Since Fall Is just around the corner I'm always in the mood to bake something Sweet, Everyday because the Weather's becoming so much cooler, and that breeze just feels Lovely.
So I made my very famous Carrot Cake. The recipe was taught to me by a very Good Neighbor friend, named Kay. She was a great cook, and is no longer with us in this world May god bless her Soul.
I have 3 picky Boy's and a very picky Husband, and they absolutely loved the Cake So Today I'm going to share my simple version of a very delicious Moist Carrot Cake, That I hope all of you enjoy!
1. Use a fine shredding surface to get very thin strips of carrots for this moist classic cake.
2. Adding nuts, or almonds to this carrot cake is optional, and the middle of the cake might seem to be more softer than the rest of the cake when your almost done so, put it under the broiler for just about 3-5 min.
