Moist and Easy Carrot Cake Recipe

This moist and easy carrot cake recipe was originally submitted by Michael M of Prince George, BC, Canada.

It has the wonderful addition of crushed pineapple, which adds so much flavor and moisture. It is an easy cake that gets baked in a large rectangular pan.

I love this recipe. It’s simple to put together but packs a lot of flavor. I love carrot cakes with pineapple. It adds a nice level of sweetness.
