Here is my favoriteCarrot Cake Recipe! Ina Garten is a genious in the kitchen. I know you are going to look at the recipe and think WHAT?! But it is SOOO worth the work!! My girls love to help and the chore turns into a fun family treat. The pineapple and fresh shredded carrot adds flavor and moisture that would other wise be unattainable. I don't put the pineapple on top and I bake in a 9" x 13". It is divine.
