Aunt Annette's Carrot Cake

I used Annettes recipe to make the grooms cake for Anna Tennis and Jesse Luoma's wedding.
Annette was my dads youngest sister.  I modified my Aunts recipe to use half the brown sugar and increased the eggs and cinnamon. Nancy.


1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
4 eggs
1 cup canola oil
1 tsp salt
2 tsp soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 cup crushed pineapple (crush fresh in food processor)
2 cups grated carrots
1 cup unsweetened coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 cups flour

Mix sugars, oils and eggs and then all other ingredients except flour. Finally add flour and stir by hand until blended. Line two 9 inch cake pans with parchment and spray edges. Bake 30-40 minutes at 350F until knife comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
 4 cup powdered sugar
16 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
4 tbsp vanilla
