Yet another family dessert that I don’t recall encountering. This one sounds quite yummy, though. I love carrots, you see.
This recipe was found in a book called Galley Finale: A Collection of Mariner Soups, Sloops, and Other Incredible Edibles which was put out by The Presbyterian Church of Fair Oaks, Ca in 1978.

2 c. sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. finely grated carrots

2 tsp. baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a saucepan melt butter. Add sugar and stir until well-blended. Remove from heat and beat in eggs. Beat in all remaining ingredients except nuts, fold in last. Bake in greased square pan. Cut when warm.
If anyone out there makes one of the recipes posted on this blog, please let me know how it comes out. Thanks!
