How to make it
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat 9 x 13 inch pan with cooking spray.
- Whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
- Mix in eggs, splenda, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla.
- Stir in pineapple (with juice), carrots and walnuts.
- In a small bowl, mix raisins and 1 tablespoon of flour, then stir into batter (this will keep them from sinking to the bottom of the cake).
- Pour into prepared pan and even out.
- Bake approximately 40-45 minutes, or until top of cake springs back when lightly touched and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
- Cool completely before frosting.
- Blend cream cheese and splenda; fold in whipped topping.
- Frost cake.
- NOTE: I use a hand grater to grate (not shred) the carrots. I tried doing it with a food processor but the carrots were very dry and made the first cake dry. With the hand grater, I get some carrot juice with the carrots and this helped make the second cake more moist..
