I have not heard of it, but it sounds very interesting with carrots?

I found this one on tasteofhome.com Is this it?

Carrot Fruitcake
12-16 Servings Prep: 20 min. Bake: 1 hour 20 min. + cooling
Ingredients
1-1/2 cups chopped nuts
1 cup chopped mixed candied fruit
1 cup chopped dates
1 cup raisins
3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
2 cups sugar
1-1/2 cups canola oil
4 eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups finely shredded carrots
Confectioners' sugar icing, optional
Directions
Combine nuts, fruit, dates and raisins with 1/2 cup flour; set aside.
In a large bowl, combine sugar and oil; mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and remaining flour; gradually add to sugar mixture, beating until smooth. (Batter will be stiff.) Fold in carrots and fruit mixture. Spoon into a greased and floured 10-in. tube pan.
Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. If desired, drizzle with icing. Yield: 12-16 servings

Thank you, Janie, the one from food.com is similar,closer than others I've seen but not the same---maybe it was a Heloise recipe-
I am SO UPSET I lost it. It had candied fruit, too--and I remember you mixed part of the ingredients and let it sit at least overnight before mixing in the rest of the ingredients and baking it....
People who hate fruit cake loved that one!
