This carrot cake is flavorful and is perfectly fluffy and moist.

Carrot cake is most commonly referred to as a spice cake as it is filled with a combination of earthy spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Some recipes that you may find in stores do not adhere to this and the flavor can be underwhelming.

I have added a lot of ingredients to this recipe to enhance the flavor, but you can customize it to your liking. What makes this recipe even better is that it has the right amount of sweetness, so you can savor every bite without the overwhelming sugar content. Without further ado, let’s make some carrot cake!

I used salted butter in this recipe, but you can always just use unsalted. 
For the pineapple, I used frozen and just let it thaw before blending it with a little water.
