Grandmas Carrot-Pineapple Cake

This is my Grandmas Carrot-Pineapple Cake. It is WONDERFUL !!! I am not sure where it came from but she has made it for years for all the WW2 soldiers and sailors who graced her home every Sunday for a home cooked meal. She would always bring home the militery who didn't have a place to eat after Sunday services in Washington DC and San Diego CA. It was also a staple in all those old fashioned Diners she managed over the years.
