This turns out very moist & sticky. My family eats it for breakfast before I can get the cream cheese frosting on it!

* I learned a trick from my husband’s family. To keep any cake from drying out place a THIN amount of shortening on the bottom and sides of the baking pan, and then “flour” it with SUGAR.

I prefer to use a glass baking pan for this.

How to Make Whole Wheat Carrot Pineapple Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Lightly grease and flour* 13x9x2 inch baking pan. Place all ingredients, excluding nuts/options, in large mixing bowl, mix well with mixer on medium speed until well blended; about 2-3 minutes. Fold in nuts/options. Pour in baking pan and bake for 50 to 60 min. or until toothpick/knife inserted into center comes out clean. Cake will be very moist.

    Cool completely. Frost with cream cheese frosting below – if desired.

    For Cream Cheese frosting:

    2 (8 oz.) pkgs. Cream cheese, softened.
    ¼ - ¾ cup sugar** (depending on how sweet you like it)
    2 TBSP milk
    1 TBSP vanilla

    ** Honey can be used instead of sugar.

    Mix cream cheese and vanilla well with mixer until smooth. Add sweeteners and milk a little at a time, as you continue mixing, until smooth. (If frosting is too thick for your taste, thin out by adding a little extra milk, a teaspoon at a time.)
