Carrot Cake

This is the best carrot cake I have ever tasted. I got it from my sister-in -law who has always raved about it. When I make it for a crowd, everyone ooos and ahhhs over it. I omit the walnuts.

1 cup oil
3 eggs
2 ¼ cups sugar
2 cups grated carrots
1 20 ounce can crushed pineapple (with juice)


2 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Sift and fold into wet ingredients. Stir in 1 cup chopped walnuts and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Pour into buttered 9x13 pan and bake for 1 hour at 350*. Let cool and spread with Cream Cheese Frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
½ cup butter
