Total Time

This is a recipe my mother-in-law came up with. So simple but our young boys absolutely love it. It's a carrot cake but tastes like pumpkin bread. The lil thing that makes it special is our boys call her "MOTTS" so we only use Motts apple sauce to make our "Motts" cake. We used a mix that contains raisins and liked it best that way. The results will be VERY moist.
