I always make this carrot cake in April. One, because April is Bill's Mom's birthday month and two, because the family always has it for Easter gatherings. I am sure Tee found this recipe in the 50's or 60's, but she always put her touch on it by packing it with lots of grated carrots. So get out your grater and get to work! No Easter gathering this year, but I am going to make it anyway and I have lots of carrots stockpiled for our shelter-in-place. If you can't eat it all, freeze half or give half to your favorite neighbor.
