Personal Notes:
Carrot cake was part of the special occasion cakes served on extended family gatherings like Easter, Thanksgiving, or Christmas. It was also served based on special family requests for birthdays, etc. I also enjoyed carrot cake. It was light and not too rich. I can still see this cake on the dessert table at our big family gatherings. We had wonderful cooks in the family and the food was wonderful!
