I really have nothing else to add to that.

I made H. go into the kitchen to bake a cake! With his mom! (The in-laws visited us.We haven’t seen them in a long, long time.) You know, to snoop around and learn her secrets…

But really there are none! It is so simple to make. Besides the carrots’ part.

You grate and grate and grate the carrots… It requires some muscles and hard work.

But your carrots will not look like this if you grate them with the food processor’s disc.

Unless you have a trick up your sleeve you would like to share with me?

Mother-in-Law Carrot cake

(Or, in Romanian: PRAJITURA de MORCOVI)

For a 9.5 inch (28 cm) cake pan, or a 30 cm * 30 cm pan

4 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 lb. (500 grams) carrots, peeled and grated
3 oz. (100 grams) raisins or dried currants
3 oz. (100 grams) walnuts, lightly toasted and chopped

Grease a baking pan and line with parchment paper.

Preheat the oven to 360 F (180 C) degrees.

In a bowl of a mixer put the eggs, sugar, oil, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt, and beat (We used the beater attachment but my MIL says she uses the whisk attachment) for 7 minutes on medium-high.

Add flour, carrots, raisins, and nuts, and beat on low speed.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 50 minutes.

For easy and safe transport, take it to the beach in the pan.
