Shoot, that's "Palate"

3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3 cups sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups corn oil (or canola or safflower)
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut (toasted is even better)
1 1/3 cups pureed cooked carrot
3/4 cup drained crushed pineapple
Cream Cheese frosting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease two 9-inch cake pans and line with parchment paper.

Sift dry ingredients into a bowl. Add oil, eggs, and vanilla. Beat well. Fold in walnuts, coconut, pureed carrot, and pinapple.

Pour batter into prepared pans. Set in middle rack of oven and bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Until edges have pulled away from the sides of the pan and a cake tested inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool on a cake rack for 3 hours. Frost cake with cream cheese frosting.

How did the fool *get* his money?!
