In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and stir into wet mixture to blend. Stir in carrot and pineapple and pour into prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour and 15 to 30 minutes, until a tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before icing.
  • To prepare frosting, beat cream cheese and butter together. Beat in icing sugar until smooth and stir in vanilla. Spread over cooled cake and store chilled until ready to serve.
  • Yield: 1 8-inch square cake. Makes 9 to 12 servings.
