Charlotte's Carrot Cake

This is my most FAVOURITE cake ever!!! Love love love it!!!
My mother in-law Charlotte is a stellar cook and this is her carrot cake 
recipe that I just can't stop eating when it's around.

3 eggs
1 cup canola oil

Beat together

Add in : 

2 cups white sugar

Mix together the following and then mix with above ingredients

2 cups flour
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt

After all combined add in....

2 cups shredded coconut
1 cup crushed pineapple
2 cup grated carrots

Grease and flour pan/pans. I personally use a bundt pan. Bake for 1 hr 25 min. Since moving to SK from NS I find it only takes around 1 hour here so keep an eye on it and test around 1 hour.

I then ice it with cream cheese frosting, the thicker the better.....LOL. This recipe is from my BFF Jodie.

Beat 1-8oz block cream cheese with 1/4 cup butter and 1/2 tsp vanilla until smooth. Both will mix better softened. Add 3 to 4 cups of icing sugar. If you like it sweeter add 4 cups-- beat for a few minutes until creamy.
