Why I Love This Recipe

Growing up in Michigan was great, especially the State Fair up north every summer where the ladies shared their very best. Got this exquisite recipe as a late teen and still use it at almost 50 living here in Atlanta. Hope you find it equally as inspiring and good. Husband and sons absolutely love it.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/4 c. oil
2 c. sugar
3 c. flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. cinnamon
3 eggs
2 c. grated raw carrots
1 c. crushed, drained pineapple
1/2 c. chopped nuts


Mix and then bake 1 hr. in tube pan at 350.

TOPPING: 1 can frozen orange juice

1 stick butter

2/3 cup sugar

Bring topping mix to a boil and put on cake when cool.

Because of this topping this cake will stay fresh for 1 week.
