Michigan State Fair Carrot Cake Winner.
Why I Love This Recipe
Growing up in Michigan was great, especially the State Fair up north every summer where the ladies shared their very best. Got this exquisite recipe as a late teen and still use it at almost 50 living here in Atlanta. Hope you find it equally as inspiring and good. Husband and sons absolutely love it.
