Personal Notes:
If the entire family can only agree on one thing, it's carrot cake. I've been making the original Ritz Carlton recipe (granulated sugar, white flour, vegetable oil) for over three decades. The sugar, flour, and oil substitutions, plus the addition of black treacle, make the cake even richer and denser.
