Carrot Sheet Cake: Preheat
your oven to 350 degrees F (180

degrees C) and place rack in center of oven. Butter (or spray with a non
stick vegetable spray) a 9 x 13 inch (23 x 33 cm) cake pan and line the bottom of the pan with parchment

paper. 

In a separate bowl, sift
or whisk
together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon.

In the bowl of an electric
stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment

(or with a hand mixer), place the eggs, sugar, oil, buttermilk, and vanilla
extract. Beat, on low speed, until thoroughly combined. Gradually add the flour mixture and beat

until

incorporated and the batter is smooth. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the
bowl as needed. With a rubber spatula or wooden spoon,

fold in the chopped

nuts, dried coconut, pineapple, and grated carrots. Spread the batter in
the pan and bake for about 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center
of the cake comes out clean.  

Remove from oven and let
cool on a wire rack for about 10 to 15

minutes. Then invert the cake onto a wire rack, remove the pan and parchment

paper. Re-invert so the top of the cake is facing up and let cool completely before frosting. 

Cream Cheese

Frosting: In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment (or with
a hand mixer), beat the butter until smooth. Add the powdered sugar and
beat until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl
as needed. Add the vanilla extract and lemon juice and beat until
incorporated. Add the very soft cream cheese in four to five additions
(scraping the bowl after each addition), beating until incorporated and the
frosting is nice and smooth.

Place the cake on
a cardboard cake board or
your serving platter. Frost the top and sides of your cake.

Can garnish the top of the cake with toasted nuts or dried coconut.

The cake can be covered and stored in the refrigerator for about five days.
Serve cold or bring to room temperature before serving. The cake can also be frozen for about
one month. Defrost in the refrigerator overnight.

Serves about 20 people.
