About this recipe:I was given this about 20 years ago, baked by a cookery teacher friend. I've never dared change it, it's been such an absolute family favourite, always gorgeous, never lets you down. We particularly love the frosting, which uses a little brown sugar instead of icing sugar, giving a more subtle flavour. Some like the pineapple pieces and nuts, others don't: they affect texture rather than taste so use as preferred.
Fabulous! We loved this carrot cake! We added the pineapple chunks and walnuts as that adds to the texture and the flavour! Great flavour topping too! Would recommend this to anyone. Delicious and easy to make. - 29 Nov 2010
