This recipe comes from a clipping from the Independent some time in the late 80s. They ran a column ever week to find the best reader's submission recipes. The article was called Carrot Cakes to Stir the Passions! The winning recipe came from Priscilla Roth from North London, who got the recipe from her mother in law in New York 15 years prior to that. This recipe really has a long history! The personal history my family has with this cake also spans more than 30 years or so. My mum used to make it for birthdays and tea time when we were little, and I can honestly say I have never really had a better carrot cake (but then I've grown up on it along with my 5 siblings!). Its simple, easy to make and delicious.The Best in the World, because that is what everyone says that tries it before asking for the recipe!
