lest we forget…


the best carrot cake ever..

I have shared this recipe with you before, but I was just in the mood for this yummy cake again and I thought I would share again…It is such a moist cake and the icing is absolutely divine. My Grandma sure knew how to bake!

Sift: 1 1/3 cup flour
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
1 ½ tsp. baking powder
1 ¼ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
Combine: 1 cup brown sugar
½ cup oil
3 eggs – beat in one at a time
Stir in sifted ingredients. Blend in 2 cups grated carrots and 1 cup chopped walnuts. Turn into prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1-11/4 hours or until cake springs back when lightly touched.

Cream 1 pkg. (4oz. or ½ cup) cream cheese and 1 ½ tbsp. of butter. Gradually blend in 2 cups icing sugar.
