Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups grated carrots
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple
FROSTING:
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed

Recipe


In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Combine the oil, lemon juice and vanilla. Drain pineapple, reserving juice. If necessary, add enough water to juice to measure 3/4 cup.


Add oil mixture and pineapple juice mixture to dry ingredients; stir just until moistened. Fold in pineapple.


Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.


For frosting, in a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Fold in whipped topping.


Spread over cake; sprinkle with coconut if desired. Store in the refrigerator.


Yield: 12-16 servings.
