My mother used to make a couple versions of this, in fact it is included in "Thoughts for Buffet" printed in 1958. Only that version calls for 1 cup shortening which i converted to one cup softened butter, but that is a lot of butter...i will try reducing it per the proportions in this version. It also used cake flour (1-1/2 cups), and included 1 tsp cinnamon and a half tsp nutmeg, and no salt, 1-1/2 cups carrot, 2 Tb lemonjuice, 1Tb lemon rind, and same amnts eggs and baking powder and baking soda as this recipe. My mother taught me to bake it with the mold sitting in a pot of water. I dont have a metal mold but a bundt pan worked perfectly.
