Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is Linda's original recipe from 7th grade health class -- we had a 6 week period devoted to cooking since we didn't have Home Ec. at E.P. Jr. High. It is a truly great and moist and delicious carrot cake, probably better than Publix Carrot Cake so famous in our family. Makes a beautiful 3 layer torte, perfect for showing off to dinner guests.
