How to make it
- Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour three 8" layer pans. Combine eggs, sugar and oil. Beat on high speed until creamy and thick, 3-5 minutes. Sift together flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Slowly add 1/3 of the dry ingredients to egg mixture; beat well. Repeat with remaining dry ingredients, beating well after each addition. Batter will be extrememly stiff; it may be necessary to blend with a spatula or spoon. One by one,fold in carrots, coconut, pineapple, walnuts and raisins.
- Divide batter between the 3-8” prepared cake pans. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes, arranging cake pans in oven once. The cake is done when the tester inserted in center comes out clean. Let cake cool in pans 5 minutes. Turn out onto rack to cool completely.
- When cakes are cool, prepare frosting: combine margarine, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
- Frost cake.
