Carrot Cake

Made this last night- super yummy and almost healthy with the whole wheat flour, pineapple, carrots and raisins. Just a mixture of a few recipes that i had. When i made it i thought the batter was weird, but it turned out great- super moist and flavorful.

3 C shredded Carrots (hope you have a food processor)
1 C oil ( i want to play with this recipe and see if you could do half oil, half applesauce)
4 eggs
8 oz crushed pineapple- drained
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 C whole wheat flour
1 C sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
optional: handful of raisins and/or nuts

Preheat oven to 350.
Stir together dry ingredients. Add oil and Stir. Add eggs and Stir. Add pineapple, carrots, raisins and stir.
You can bake it in two circle pans for 35 min or a 13x9 one for 45 min.

Frost with a cream cheese or regular white frosting.

Hey, that does look pretty healthy! Maybe a good "1st Birthday" cake for Avery.

Thanks Ash!
