1/2 tsp
vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Grate or chop carrots in food processor or blender. If you use a blender you will have little carrot bits. In a food processer with the shred disk you will have shreds.
2
Basically this is a "dump" recipe. Put all cake ingredients in a large bowl. Use wooden spoon to blend.
3
Spray with non-stick, 9x13 glass baking pan. Do not use a metal pan - it will react with pineapple!
4
Pour batter into pan. Bake at 350* for 45-50 min.
5
Test for doneness with toothpick inserted in center. It should come out clean.
6
Remove cake from oven and puncture top all over with fork tines. Loosen edges from pan if necessary.
7
Make Glaze. Combine glaze ingredients in large pan EXCEPT Vanilla. Bring to a boil. Stir constantly. Don't take your eyes off of it - it can boil over in a hurry! Boil for 5 min.
8
Remove glaze from stove, add vanilla extract.
9
Immediately pour glaze over top of cake. Spread all over top and let glaze run down sides of pan / cake. You want the glaze to soak into the cake.
