Kathy's Carrot Cake

"I've been making this carrot cake for over twenty years and it never fails to get raves when I serve it. Both my brothers-in-law won't let me come to a family gathering if I'm not bringing it."

    Looking for my Aunt Kathy's recipe... I think I found it!! The best of the best. I make with the pulp left from the carrots after I juice and it's so moist!

    I had some carrots I needed to do something with and decided to make this cake. Me and my husband just LOVE it!! However, I used a store bought cream cheese icing to save time, but it was wonderful. Thanks for sharing it.

    A great carrot cake, or at least that's what the people at work fighting over the last slice said! I don't normally make carrot cake but this one was nice as it was very moist. From the cook's point of view, I liked that it didn't have any 'extra' ingredients like pineapple so I could just use up what was in my cupboard.

    Very good. I was looking for something to satisfy my sweet tooth that I could make with what I had on hand. This was quite tasty, although I used up a container of premade cream cheese frosting and skipped that step.

    My whole family LOVED this cake! It was wonderfully easy to make. Oddly enough, my brother also told me "Don't come back without that cake!" Definite crowd pleaser--will definitely be a part of our Christmas and other family functions from now on...thank you!
