Rosalie Williams made the best carrot cake when I was a child. It was her specialty at church dinners. As an adult, I got her recipe because I remembered how great it was. It doesn't have a cream cheese icing but rather a delicious buttermilk glaze.
I don't have any photos but plan to make this for a family gathering and will take pictures.
This recipe is for a cake that serves 8-10 people.
