2/3 cup oil
2/3 cup applesauce
about 2 cups of sugar(I cut down on it, but don't have an exact measurement)
1 small can crushed pineapple, drained(about 8 oz)*
2 cup flour(I used wheat and white)
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
2 cup shredded carrots
1 tsp vanilla
Mix together oil, applesauce, sugar and eggs. Add in pineapple, mix. Mix in the rest of the ingredients until batter is throughly mixed. Place in greased pan and cook for 45 mins at 350 degrees.
*When I drain my pineapple I only cut the top and drain the juice out and press it a little until most of the juice is out. This helps keep the cake nice and moist!
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 stick of butter
1/2 box of powdered sugar(about 2-2.5 cups)
Cream together butter and cheese, add in sugar until light and fluffy. Top cake.
