This is Rebbetzin Zahava Braunstein’s recipe for Carrot Cake (aka Swiss Carrot Cake), as shared by her daughters.
They describe the consistency and the beautiful simplicity of the meals she served. Although she’d occasionally make something new, there wasn’t a goal of serving complex foods or trying recipes that were a big patchke. But the security of ample, delicious food prepared with love and joy, and the focus on time spent with family and friends, together with beautiful zemiros and divrei Torah, created a very spiritual and special Shabbos experience.
