“I have changed this adopted recipe quite a bit. Originally, it called for all whole wheat flour, and that sounded really heavy for the cake. I added nutmeg and cloves, and when the batter was extremely thick, I added the can of crushed pineapple, because I like pineapple in cheesecake. I have also added a frosting. My DIL, who loves carrot cake, loved this cake.”
