I made this recipe exactly as is for one single-layer 9x13 cake and also made one without walnuts for another single-layer 9x13 cake. This recipe is a welcome variation on traditional "carrot-only" carrot cake. The addition of pineapple, coconut flakes and raisins makes this carrot cake burst with flavor and gives it a rich sweet, but light flavor. The texture was dense and moist, not light and somewhat dry, like some "carrot-only" carrot cakes. It has 1/2 the rising agent as the Carrot Cake III Recipe, so it is not as airy and fluffy. It is more like a quick bread rather than a traditional cake.
