    dale!'s Note:

    The addition of pineapple makes this "hummingbird". This is the best carrot cake recipe I've found, totally addictive. The cream cheese icing is a must.

      Very Yummy cake!! I love the pineapple in this. The coconut was a nice touch too, it makes you think "tropical". It was very moist, lots of flavor, I made it just as directed, didn't change a thing, but I baked it in 13x9 pan for about 45 minutes. Thanks for a great recipe, dale!
