Old Virginia Carrot Tea Cake

Old Virginia Carrot Tea Cake created by Tulip-Fairy

I cut this out of the Vancouver Sun newspaper some time in the 80's. It is one of the nicest carrots cakes I've tried, and it really doesn't need icing.

    I made this for the 'O' is October event. It was lovely, I followed the recipe exactly and it had a great flavour. Loved the crunch that the pecans gave it. Thanks for sharing Helen.
