Ingredients

Carrot Cake:

Cream Cheese Frosting:

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 355° F. Spread coconut flakes onto a baking sheet, bake 5-7 minutes, until golden in color. Remove and set aside to cool.
  • Cut pineapple into cubes, puree with a hand mixer.
  • Peel and grate carrots.

Prepare cake layers:

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Line three 8-inch round baking pans with parchment baking. Spray with baking spray and lightly dust with flour.
  • In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat together eggs with sugar on high speed until mixture starts to become fluffy.
  • In a different bowl combine oil, carrots, vanilla, and pureed pineapple. Add to the eggs mixture and mix with a spatula until combined.
  • Add half the flour to the wet ingredients and mix with a spatula. Add the remaining flour and continue mixing with a spatula until combined.
  • Add the chopped walnuts and toasted coconut. Fold into the mixture with a spatula.
  • Pour the cake batter evenly between the three prepared baking pans. Bake at 350° F for 16-18 minutes. Once the cakes have completely cooled, remove from the pans and set aside to cool completely. 

Prepare frosting:

  • In a bowl, mix together cream cheese and butter on high speed.
  • Add the sugar and vanilla, mix.

Assembling the cake:

  • Place first cake layer onto a cake stand, add cream. Repeat with remaining layers and cream. Cover sides and tops of cake with frosting and decorate as desired.
