Carrot Cake

This is a wonderfully flavored moist cake. Growing up my mom made cut-out cakes using this recipe. It is highly requested when our daughters come home to visit. A true family favorite.

Prep Time: 15 to 20 minutes   Cook Time: 35 to 45 minutes  


2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder

1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
2 cups finely grated carrot
1 (8 1/2 oz.) can crushed pineapple, drained
(a 20 oz. can of pineapple drained & squeezed equals 8 ounces)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3 1/2 to 4 ounces flaked coconut

1/2 cup butter
1 (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 lb. confectioners sugar
