Ingredients

  • ¾ cup plain flour (all-purpose flour)
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup flaked sweetened coconut
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups grated carrots, peeled
  • 560 g crushed pineapple in juice, drained
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts plus ¼ cup for topping

For the cream cheese frosting

  • 225 g Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 1 cup icing sugar (powdered sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 175°C. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, coconut, baking soda, salt, and spices; stir well with a whisk.
  • In a medium bowl, combine oil, eggs, and vanilla; stir well. Add grated carrots and pineapple; mix well. Fold wet ingredients with the dry ingredients, batter will be stiff and dry but keep folding it and it will all come together. Fold in ¼ cup chopped nuts.
  • Spoon batter into an 20cm x 7.5cm cake pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 175°C for about 40-50 minutes, depending on pan size or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean and cake is pulling away from sides of pan. Cool cake completely on a wire rack.
  • To prepare frosting, beat together cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla until smooth. Spread frosting over top of cake. Garnish with remaining chopped walnuts.
