  2. I have to tell you what a HIT this cake was last night! Everyone went crazy for it! The raisins and crushed pineapple make such a difference in the texture of this carrot cake. You have to try it! I am going to revise this recipe and make it my own. I omitted the pineapple and nuts and added some different spices. YUM!@!@!
