Ingredients
  1. 2 c sugar
  2. 1 1/2 c vegetable oil
  3. 4 lg eggs
  4. 2 c flour
  5. 2 t baking soda
  6. 2 t cinnamon
  7. 1 t salt
  8. 2 c grated carrots
  9. 1 8 oz can crushed pineapple, drained
  10. 1 c chopped walnuts
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Beat oil, sugar and eggs with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth ~ 2 min.
  3. Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt then beat on low speed until just smooth.
  4. Fold in carrots, pineapple and nuts with a spoon or spatula until just combined.
  5. Pour batter into a greased and floured 10 inch pan or two 8 inch pans.
  6. Bake 60 - 70 minutes until brown and firm to touch in center.
  7. Frost with choice of topping once cooled.
Notes
  1. * If using pre-packaged shredded carrots give them a little extra chop before adding to the batter
  2. as the shreds may be too long.
  3. * Substitute 5-Spice Powder, Allspice or Garam Masala for the cinnamon.
  4. * Try hazel nuts or macadamia nuts for a change.
  5. * Coconut oil is a flavorful substitute for vegetable oil.
  6. * Instead of cream cheese frosting try a spiced or liquor flavored whipped cream.
