Loaded with spices, lots of fresh carrots, pineapple, coconut, pecans, and plump raisins, this is carrot cake done right. Raisins are an often- misunderstood ingredient but do not skip them; these ones are plumped in pineapple juice, and we promise you will not even recognize them for what they once were. The dreamy cream cheese icing is extra creamy and not too sweet, a perfect partner for this flavourful cake. In fact, it is practically a health food with all those carrots and nuts and fruit, so what are you waiting for?
