Abbott Northwestern Station 63 Carrot Cake

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Miss Erin C.

This is the absolute best Carrot Cake I have ever tasted. It comes from Abbott Northwestern Hospital, Station 63-- it's not hospital food, but a recipe from one of the nurses there. It is fantastic! Make it a day ahead and put it in the fridge after it is frosted and it gets even better!

This cake was fabulous! I made it in two 9" rounds, took one to our neighborhood easter egg hunt and served the other on Easter Sunday! Everyone loved it! A definitel keeper!!
