This recipe is from a lady I went to church with in Arkansas. The ingredient list may appear daunting, but this cake comes together easily.

My family claims this is "The best cake I have ever made!!" I cheated and used packaged grated carrots, which made life much easier. Even my daughter's boyfriend who doesn't like sweets had two pieces, which says a lot!! Thanks Suzanne for a wonderful recipe.
