PRIZE WINNING PINEAPPLE CARROT CAKE RECIPE FROM SCRATCH

The pineapple juice you squeeze out of the crushed pineapple can be used for another recipe.

CAKE:
3 cups flour
3 cups white sugar
1 tsp salt
1 TBS baking soda


1 TBS ground cinnamon
1-1/2 cups corn oil
4 large eggs
1 TBS homemade pure vanilla extract
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1-1/2 cups shredded coconut
1-1/3 cups pureed cooked carrots
3/4 cup drained crushed pineapple

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 9 inch cake pans and line with parchment paper. Grease the top of the parchment paper and set aside.

Sift dry ingredients (first five) together in a large bowl. Add the oil, eggs and vanilla. Beat well.

Fold in walnuts, coconut, carrots and pineapple. Pour into prepared cake pans. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until edges have pulled away from the sides and when a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.

Cool on a rack. Fill cake and frost sides with cream cheese frosting. Garnish with pecans if you wish.



FROSTING INGREDIENTS:
3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
8 oz cream cheese, softened
6 TBS butter, softened
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
juice of 1/2 lemon (optional)


FROSTING:

In a bowl - cream together cream cheese and butter. Slowly sift in powdered sugar and continue beating until the frosting is smooth and creamy. Stir in vanilla and lemon juice if using.

NOTE: You may easily freeze the cake until you need it. Just defrost and cover with icing. It tastes like the day you made it. One of my favorite homemade cake recipes.

If you want a more "cream cheese" flavored frosting, please see my other Homemade Cream Cheese Frosting. It's fantastic.
