Saturday I took my mother and my son's girlfriend to Natchitoches. Natchitoches is always pretty but even more so in the spring. There were many people there shopping and just strolling along front street. After we ate a delicious "girly" lunch we wandered into a cafe for coffee. They were serving carrot cake and boy was it delicious. Our slice must have been 4" wide. Of course we shared it 3 ways. Ever since then I have been wanting to make a carrot cake. I don't bake like this very often but since it's almost Easter I think it is ok. My family loves carrot cake especially my daughter. She always requests one for her birthday. So here is my version of Carrot Cake. It is my mom's recipe and I think it is very good. However, this one is going to my husband's office since we don't need it around to tempt us. I may make another for this weekend. I will gladly share the recipe.
