Hubby doesn't want any gift so i baked him this easy moist delicious carrot cake though i call it, carrot and pineapple cake.. ☺️ He loves it.. Yey! Thanks for the recipe.
Carrots give carrot cake a health-halo effect—people think it's health food, but it's usually very high in fat and calories. But our version has about 40 percent less calories and 50 percent less fat than most. First, we use less oil in our batter. Then we skip the butter in the frosting (don't worry, it's still light and smooth). To ensure the cake is moist, we add nonfat buttermilk and crushed pineapple.

A friend suggested sprinkling powder sugar on top instead of the frosting. Most of my guest removed the frosting, they did not like it either. I am not a big fan of cream cheese. Over all, the cake was good. I will make it again, but will add the raisons and no frosting.
I followed the advice of others and added an extra 1/2 cup of flour. It was delicious and perfectly moist. I made the cake a day in advance.
I have made this cake many times. It is always great!
I love the pineapple, and I sometimes add raisins. When someone wants me to bring carrot cake to a gathering, this is my go-to recipe.
I made this for my son's 1st birthday, and everyone thought it was a decent cake. Tasted much better the next morning with coffee after flavors settled together a little more.
I followed the advice of other reviewers and added 1/4 cup more of flour. I left out the nuts, but it might've been good with the added crunch, and I didn't add as much coconut. I don't think it really needs the coconut.
I made it in larger pan, 11x13 and cooked for 32 minutes, and it was very fluffy, moist, and made for perfect portions. I would recommend a double batch of frosting to cover completely.
