This is a hearty carrot cake with all the trimmings, including pineapple. Try it topped with a cream cheese icing.
tried to half this recipe since i only wanted one cake, and ended up with way too little batter. turned out more like carrot cake bars. was done in around 30 minutes. next time i will use the full recipe to fill ONE pan. taste was pretty good though. - 02 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made this for my husband's birthday and it was a really dense cake. I followed the instructions, but added nutmeg as well. The cake was solid and not soft. It had good flavor, but perhaps the writer left something out in the ingredients. - 04 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
THIS CAKE WAS VERY DENSE AND DRY. IT HAD A CRUSTY EDGE EVEN AT LOWEST COOK TIME. THE BATTER ROSE ENOUGH TO GO OVER PAN EDGE AND BAKE CRUSTY. I MADE IT FOR BIRTHDAY PARTY AND WAS NOT PLEASED. - 12 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
