Carrot Cake: Family Recipes

My mother made this a lot around holidays or when out of town relatives were visiting.  It was oh so good!  Particularly with whipped topping...  (she used the baby food and was very very moist!)


1 1/4 cup salad oil         
4 eggs                   
2 cups sugar                  
2 tsp. baking powder         
1/2 tsp. baking soda      
1 tsp. salt   
2 cups flour          
2 tsp. cinnamon
3 cups grated carrots (can use 4 small jars baby carrots or 2 junior jars)
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Combine oil and sugar, mix well.  Stir in rest of ingredients alternating dry and wet with 4 eggs.  Bake in 10 inch tube pan.  Bake in a floured and grease bunt pan in a slow oven at 325 degrees for 1 hour 10 minutes.  Cool upright in pan.  When cool cut out of pan to release cake.  You may put icing on cake.  Cream cheese icing is pretty good.  See cookbook section for icings.  Very rich!  Cake is good plain.  It is very moist.
