    I am a 78 y/o very experienced baker. Yet, for some reason, I never made a carrot cake. I printed out all the recipes from the web that claimed to be the World's Best--about 10 altogether.
    I baked them all, and this one is the winner by far--so moist
    and light, perhaps due to the larger quantity of pineapple than
    the other cakes. I made only some very minor changes--used
    1/4 cup King Arthur cake improver and 1/4 cup buttermilk in
    the batter. Baked it in one layer in a square (Kaiser?) spring form pan. Also used a slightly more complicated frosting--12 oz. powdered sugar, 1 1/2 8oz pkgs cream cheese, 1 1/2 teaspoons
    vanilla, 2 teaspoons softened butter and 2 tablespoons milk--
    then beat the heck out of it. After it was frosted, I grated some
    raw carrot and sprinkled it randomly on top--not too much.
    Baked one for my neighbor too--who said it was the best they ever tasted. So, congratulations to you!!!!

    This is very much like my own recipe but with some great extras added. I certainly have to bake this 5 forks cake. I think I may just have found a new recipe to replace mine

    I've never tried carrot cake with coconut in it but I get the feeling it would only improve the cake. Sounds very very good and yes I would make it without the nuts lol That does look amazing! I'm sold!
