Mother-in-law's Carrot Cake

When David and I first started living together, I wanted to make things he really enjoyed from his childhood. The best way for me to prepare his favorites was to go to the source…his mother. Of course as we grow older, our tastes change but there are some foods that no matter how old we are, we still crave some of our “mama’s” cuisine.


One of David’s favorite desserts till this day is carrot cake. When I first got my mother-in-law’s recipe, we rushed to make it. The cake was perfectly moist and packed with “carrot” flavor obviously! The only downside of her recipe was that the icing was way too sweet!


With a few slight modifications, we had our “grown up” version of one of his favorites. Although there are many great carrot cake recipes out there, this is my “go to” recipe. If you like carrot cake, this one is a winner…
Bon Appétit!
