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.
1 cup canola oil
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.
