How to make it
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large mixing bowl, toss together the carrots, walnuts, pineapple, raisins, and coconut with 1/2 cup of the flour to coat them and keep them from sinking to the bottom of the cake batter.
- Sift together the remaining 1 1/2 cups flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt.
- In a mixer with a whip attachment, mix the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy (the "ribbon" stage) then drizzle in the vegetable oil.
- Fold in the dry ingredients and pour over the carrot mixture.
- Fold carefully to blend, then pour the batter into a buttered, floured 10 by 3-inch cake pan containing a circle of parchment paper in the bottom.
- Bake until firm to the touch in the center, about 1 to 1 1/4 hours.
- Let cool on a rack and then turn out. Dust the top with powdered sugar and cut into wedges to serve.
