Awesome Carrot Cake

A wonderfully moist, perfect recipe for carrot cake. This delicious homemade carrot cake would be perfect for any celebratory occasion or as an afternoon snack idea with friends.

A cake that is simple to make from scratch with pantry ingredients. You can easily make it in an afternoon, with plenty of time to kill while the cake is cooling down. The carrots are the star of the show, the crushed pineapples add acidity and at the same time add moisture to the cake.
