Instructions

Cake instructions

 

Butter and sugar the bottoms and sides of your pan – this gives your cake a chewy, crunchy exterior. Once you have done this, you will do it for other cakes as well.

 

Cream oil and sugar, until fluffy. Add eggs, carrots, and pineapple and mix well.

 

Combine dry ingredients and stir with a whisk to blend, then add to carrot mixture, a small amount at a time, until well mixed.

 

Divide between 3 buttered and sugared 9″ cake pans.

 

Bake at 325 for 15-20, until toothpick tests done, around 20-15 minutes.
 

 

Frosting instructions

 

Beat butter and cream cheese until blended. Add sugar a little at a time, beating well until smooth.

Stir in vanilla and spread on cooled cake.

 

Frosting only makes enough to cover insides of cake, not sides.
