Giving it 4 stars as I made multiple changes after reading the reviews. Drained carrots (grated them large) and pineapple and batter was still very moist. I also used 3 sifted cups of white lilly flour and added 1/4 tsp each of nutmeg, allspice, and ginger as well as 1/2 tsp of baking powder. Left out raisins and used pecans as I don't like walnuts. Baked in three 9 inch pans for about 35 min. Used cream cheese icing (5tblsp butter, 8oz cream cheese, 2 1/2 c. confectioner's sugar, 1tsp vanilla, lemon zest).
Cake was DELICIOUS. The 80+ year old matriarch and reigning baker of the family proclaimed it tasted "like a professional had made it."
