Wanda Barnes received her carrot cake recipe from her sister many years ago. “I’ve had it for so long,” she said.
She usually makes the carrot cake at Easter because her brother-in-law asks for it. She does not make it as much as she would like because her husband loves the cake but is diabetic.
Barnes recently fulfilled requests to bring her cake to the Waterford Homemakers annual picnic.
While she usually makes it as a sheet cake, sometimes she makes the cake in individual pound cake pans. When she does, it cooks for about 30-40 minutes.
