DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Sift together flour, baking powder, soda, salt and cinnamon.
  • In mixing bowl, beat eggs and add sugar.
  • Let stand until sugar dissolves, about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in oil, carrots, drained pineapple and nuts.
  • Stir in dry ingredients and beat until well blended--3 minutes or so with blender.
  • Turn into 3 greased and floured 9-inch round cake pans or one 13-x9-inch pan.
  • Bake at 350°F for 35 to 40 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched.
  • Cool in pans about 10 minutes, then turn onto wire racks to cool completely before frosting.
  • Frosting: Combine butter, cream cheese and vanilla in large bowl and beat until well blended.
  • Add powdered sugar gradually, beating vigorously.
  • If frosting is too thick, thin with a few drops of milk to spreading consistency.
