2 cups sugar 4 eggs
3/4 cup canola oil 2 tsp each baking soda and powder
3 tbsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp fresh ground nutmeg*
1/8 tsp ground clove* 4 cups grated carrots
1 cup chopped walnuts 1 can crushed pineapple, put in a sieve and juice
1/2 cup coconut* pressed out
1/4 tsp salt
*I added the clove and nutmeg, and bumped up the coconut from 1/4 cup
In a stand mixer, beat the sugar and eggs until pale. Add the oil. Sift together the dry ingredients and add to the egg mixture. Fold in the carrots, walnuts, pineapple and coconut. Bake in whatever greased and floured pans you wish at 350. If using a bundt or tube pan, bake for about 1 hour. 9" pans will take about 35-40 minutes...test with a toothpick. Bon appetit!
