  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease & flour a 13"x9" baking dish, preferably glass.
  • In a large bowl, whisk or sift together flour, soda, cinnamon & salt.
  • In a medium bowl, beat eggs, then add oil, buttermilk, sugar & vanilla, & blend well.
  • Add this egg mixture to the dry ingredients, mixing thoroughly, then stir in the pineapple, carrots, valnuts, coconut & raisins, & mix well.
  • Pour into prepared baking dish & bake at least 65-70 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • For the glaze-- 10 MINUTES BEFORE THE CAKE IS DONE-- in a saucepan mix the sugar, soda, buttermilk, corn syrup & butter, then bring to a boil & boil 5 minutes. Remove from heat & add vanilla.
  • Remove the cake from the oven & with a skewer or knife poke a number of holes into the hot cake, making sure the holes reach the bottom of the cake.
  • Slowly pour the hot glaze over the hot cake, carefully spreading it all over the top of the cake, until it is absorbed.
  • Let the cake cool completely, then refrigerate. DO NOT REHEAT THE CAKE!
