I think I found my husbands grandmothers carrot cake recipe but it doesn’t say what type of pan to use. My husband swears that she used her pound cake pan (tube pan/angel food pan) for all cakes she made. However the recipe says to cook the cake for 30-35 mins at 350 degrees and I don’t feel like 30-35 minutes would be enough time in a tube pan? I have attached the recipe. What do you guys think? Should I just use 2-3 single layer round cake pans? Help! Found Grandmothers Carrot Cake Recipe But Direction Aren’T Clear.Help! Found Grandmothers Carrot Cake Recipe But Direction Aren’T Clear.

Your recipe is almost like one I have ( I use 3c carrots) I use 3- 9" pans & bake 350 for about 30 to 35 min.

I suspected grandma's recipe was from a wesson oil. the recipe you provided was missing salt, but these to are close enough that this will work:  https://www.justapinch.com/recipes/dessert/cake/aunt-gibbys-famous-carrot-cake.html
