Kathy's notes for this recipe:
My daddy gave me this recipe several years ago and said "Here this is what I want for my birthday cake. Make it." LOL so I did. Really moist cake. You can leave the walnuts out if you like or have nut allergies. I leave them out because daddy told me to. And well I have to do what daddy says right?
Hope y'all enjoy this

Preheat oven to 350

Add oil and eggs and mix well, add carrots, pineapple with juice and walnuts (optional). Mix well. Pour into well greased & floured cake pans( I line my cake pans with parchment paper instead of greasing & flour)
Bake 40-45 minutes at 350. Let cool completely before icing
ICING. Mix cream cheese, butter and confectioner's sugar until smooth. (If to sweet add 1/4 cup sour cream)
