Lizzie-boo originally posted this recipe in What’s for Dinner November 2006:

3 cups all purpose flour
3 cups granulated sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. baking soda
1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups canola oil
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
1 1/3 cups pureed cooked carrots (or grated raw carrots)
3/4 cup drained crushed pineapple

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 9" layer cake pans and line with waxed paper. Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl. Add oil, eggs and vanilla. Beat well.

Fold in walnuts, coconut, carrots and pineapple. Pour batter into prepared pans. Set on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes until the edges have pulled away from the sides and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool on a cake rack for 3 hours. Fill cake and frost sides with cream cheese frosting. Dust top with confectioner’s sugar.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
8 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
6 tbsp. sweet (unsalted) butter at room temperature
3 cups confectioner’s sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
juice of 1/2 lemon

Cream together the cream cheese and butter in mixing bowl. Slowly sift in the confectioner’s sugar and continue beating until fully incorporated. Mixture should be free of lumps. Stir in the vanilla and lemon juice. Frosting for a two-layer cake.
