RECIPE BACKSTORY
I got this recipe for Amish Carrot Cake from the book 'Delicious Amish Recipes', by Phyllis Pellman Good. I call 'Amish Carrot Cake II' because it is a somewhat different recipe from the one I posted last time. I make it in honor of my Dad Russell F., on what would have been his 63rd Birthday today. He loved Carrot Cake!
