Carrot Cake

Middle school girl child picked this one out because Carrot Cake reminds her of Thanksgiving. Since she generally spends Thanksgiving with her father and his family, I am guessing it is because they have carrot cake for the holiday, but don’t quote me on that. Throw together a cream cheese icing to top if you would like an iced cake.

Carrot Cake

2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts
3 cups sugar
4 eggs

1 1/2 cups cooking oil
2 cups grated carrots
1 small can crushed pineapple
1 tsp vanilla

Blend sugar and oil. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Sift together dry ingredients and add to above mixture. Add nuts and remaining ingredients and bake at 350 for 1 hour.
