"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Directions:
Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Beat eggs and add sugar. Let stand until sugar dissolves, about 10 minutes. Stir in oil, carrots, drained pineapple, and nuts. Turn into 3 greased and floured 9-inch round cake pans or a 13x9-inch pan and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes for layered pans or about 55 minutes for 13x9-inch pan, or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool in pans about 10 minutes, then turn onto wire racks to cool completely.
For the frosting: Combine butter, cream cheese and vanilla in large bowl and beat until well blended. Add sugar gradually, beating vigorously. If too thick, thin with milk .

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
If baking cake in 13x9-inch pan, check cake at 25 minutes, ours didn't take as long to cook. If you're pineapple lovers like us try using only 1/2 lb of powdered sugar in frosting and use 1 can crushed pineapple with juice instead!
