Grandma's Carrot Cake

One of my favorite memories as a child was baking with my Grandma, so of course, food had to be part of Annie's story. As for carrot cake, it made sense that it would be Annie's favorite type of cake because it is mine. I love a good piece of carrot cake, but none of them match up to my grandma's.

Here is her cake recipe:
