I'm definitely a carrot cake fanatic, & very seldom come across a carrot cake that I like really well, but this one certainly fills the bill ~ THIS CAKE IS REALLY GREAT! I really enjoyed the pineapple IN the frosting, as well! Thanks for posting the recipe for such a great treat! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef]
