Lee's Famous Carrot Cake

My father adapted this recipe from one he got from a co-worker many years ago and it has been a staple in our family ever since. We have this cake every Thanksgiving and Christmas, and I have to admit that is the part of the meal that I look forward to the most! I bake quite a bit but this is the recipe that I always get asked for every time I make this cake. I was even asked for the recipe by someone who claimed he doesn't like carrot cake, so that should tell you how good it is!
