Bettes Best Carrot Cake Recipe @pinch

This carrot cake recipe was passed down to Linda from her mother and it is an old havefashioned (and delicious) cake. The carrot cake is super tender and moist. Shredding the carrots and adding brown sugar to the bowl lets the carrots marinate in their juices before adding them to the batter. Adding the homemade cream cheese frosting to the warm cake is fantastic. The frosting slightly seeps into the cake making it even better. This carrot cake recipe was my mother's. My mother was one of the best cooks around. On my daughter's 3rd birthday her grandmother made this cake for her and ever since then this is the cake she requests. My daughter is going to be 27 tomorrow so we have been making this recipe for a long time. My mother, her grandmother is no longer with us but her recipe lives on. I think this is the best carrot cake recipe. Hope you think so too. Enjoy. Thank you for letting me share.
