Step-by-Step Process to Make Pineapple Carrot Cake

Step #1

Set the oven to 350°F (175°C). Apply oil on two 9-inch round cake pans for greasing to prepare the pans for baking.

Step #2

Take a medium bowl and add flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, salt, baking soda, and nutmeg to the bowl. Mix the well by using a wooden spoon.

Step #3

Take another separate large bowl and add cream, butter, and sugar. Mix butter and sugar until light and fluffy for 3-4 minutes with a hand blender.

Step #4

Add one egg at a time and beat well with the mixture. Continue the same process with two other eggs. Then, add the vanilla extract to the batter and mix well.
