This was another recipe of Grandma W's, with pineapple optional, and no raisins in the mix. However adding pecans makes this just amazing! Try this one, it is so darn good! With or without pineapple, this is amazing, and super easy. I wanted a carrot cake recipe for years, and it took me getting Grandma's recipe box for me to get one! (and actually she had multiple recipes)
