Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 2 - 9 inch round
cake pans. In large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder,
soda, salt, and cinnamon.
In another bowl, mix sugar and oil. Beat in eggs with electric
mixer. Stir in carrots, nuts, and pineapple. Stir in flour mixture.
Pour into prepared pans.
Bake for 45 minutes or until cake tester comes clean. Remove
pans to wire racks. Cool 15 minutes before removing cake from
pans. Finish cooling on rack. Spread icing between layers and
Cream cheese icing-
1 pound cream cheese ( I use the real stuff!)
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
3 T. pineapple juice
Note- I usually make this as a sheet cake instead of a layer cake.
You may need to adjust baking times to accommodate larger
size. Also, if you make it as a layer cake, you will have more
icing than needed but my family loves lots of icing so I use it
