How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan.
  • In a large bowl, beat together eggs, oil, sugars, and vanilla. Mix in flour, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, salt and cinnamon. Stir in carrots. Fold in pecans. Pour into prepared pan.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.

  • To Make Frosting: In a medium bowl, combine butter, cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Stir in chopped pecans. Frost the cooled cake.
  • Optional: Mix pineapple into frosting or sprinkle pineapple inbetween cake layers, after they have been frosted.

    I think you may be right about putting the pineapple inbetween the layers. I have never made this recipe yet - it was one of those that I found in the newspaper that I wanted to keep. I am unsure of where I picked up this recipe so I can't double check it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

    There is a problem with the frosting recipe. Ingredients call for crushed pineapple but it is omitted from the directions. I am guessing the crushed pineapple should be spread on the layers as a filling before covering with the cream cheese frosting.
