What a delicious tasting cake! My only problem was it was TOO moist for me to cut into pieces that held together. Everybody still raved over it. I cut the sugar down to 1 1/2 cups and used my own homegrown pineapple. I had one remark saying thanks for the pumpkin goodie! Guess the carrots added that taste. Will make this one again for sure!

This is a delicious, easy cake to make, and it came out great, even though I made some very slight changes. Like a nitwit, I didn't realize I was almost out of cooking oil, and ended up using 3/4 cup vegetable oil and 1/4 cup melted butter. I could not find the size can of pineapple that was listed, so I used an 8 oz. can of no sugar added crushed pineapple. I wasn't sure if I should drain it or not, and didn't. Needless to say, the cake was very moist. I think next time it will be okay to drain the pineapple. And, yes, there will be a next time. This tastes like a very mild version of carrot cake, and was a big hit with my family. Thanks for sharing this keeper! Made for Newest Zaar tag game.
