Diane's Carrot Cake

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by karen in tbay

When I had my third child at 42, nurse and long time friend Diane brought in this scrumpdelicious cake for hubby and 2 teens since I would be spending a week in hospital BUT she made the mistake of leaving it with me!! Need I say more, I raved about her cake and passed out her recipe to her fellow co-workers and sent half a pan home for the gang! Then made my husband promise to bring me up another piece or two MMMMMMMMMMMM

Did not enjoy as much as other Carrot Cakes i have tryed. Too sweet for my taste. Should have less sugar (1 cup less ) or without the pineapple. If you have both, it is just way too sweet.
