Carrot Cake

For those of you that hate carrot cake because it is so dry, you will LOVE this, there hasn't been anybody who hasn't!

2 c sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 c oil
2 1/2 tsp vanilla

mix and beat well.

Add & mix:

2 c flour
2 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon

Add (with spoon):

1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple with juice (do not drain)
3 c grated carrots

Grease and flour well a 9x13 pan ( the one I use is a little larger than this or it will overflow) and bake at 350* for about 60 minutes. Cool and frost.

Cream Cheese Frosting

1 (8 oz) cream cheese
1 cube margarine
1 tsp vanilla
About 1 box powdered sugar

Mix well with hand mixer. Put on cooled cake.

James just made a carrot cake (from a box) last week for a homework assignment and we had it gone so fast...of course I am all for any excuse to eat cream cheese frosting!
