This recipe might be the reason I was born. While my parents were dating, my mother made this carrot cake recipe from her Aunt Mil for my father. And it was just that good. My family now uses the verb "carrot-caking" as a synonym for "shoveling-it-in-without-stopping-between-bites-because-it's-so-heavenly". Yum. also can make 1 bundt pan.
