Geri's Ono Carrot Cake

I think I got this recipe from my sister Geri a long time ago. Except for having to grate the carrots it's really simple . . . and it's very, very good. It calls for crushed pineapple. I think that's what makes it so moist.

Here's my recipe card. Pretty clean looking considering most of my favorite ones are all yogore (It means dirty in Japanese).
My least favorite part: Grate 2 cups of carrots.
Sift together (in new sifter from Susie): 2 cups flour, 2 tsp. baking powder, 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. salt.
In a separate bowl mix together: 2 cups sugar, 1 1/2 cups oil and 4 eggs.
Add grated carrots, 1/2 cup chopped nuts and 1 can (8 1/2 oz.) drained crushed pineapple.
Pour into 3 loaf pans. I lined the pans with foil cause 1) easier to remove the cake when pau and 2) I want to reuse the disposable pans one more time (no I'm not pake).
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
Trust me . . . it's veeeeeery ono.

Oh wow!! So ONO looking. Ok, this one I have to make. I think I've seen carrots already shredded in packages at Bel Air. I will have to look this week. Sure would make life easier except the freshly grated carrots would taste better. I need a dessert for the card swap on April 10th. Thanks for sharing, Jalna. Hey you should create a page for your blog on Facebook and then put your posts on there, like I do. Just a thought! :)

Thanks Erick. I bought the carrots a couple weeks ago, and finally decided to make the cake since I nevah go car show and was free.

Hey Betty. Create a page on FB? Hmmm . . . I'll check it out. I used almost 2 BIG carrots. I think it'll be perfect for your card swap.
