1 ½ cups whole-wheat flour

2 tsp baking soda
½ tsp kosher salt

Mix Separately:

2 cups grated carrots
1 cup crushed pineapple drained
½ cup chopped nuts (any variety)
½ cup sesame seeds
½ cup coconut

Beat in large bowl:

3 large eggs
¾ cup canola oil
¾ cup buttermilk
2 cups turbinado sugar (unrefined)
1 tsp vanilla


½ cup buttermilk
1 cups turbinado sugar (unrefined)
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp corn syrup
½ cup butter unsalted (whole stick)
½ cup coconut

Add carrot mixture to the egg mixture, and then add the flour and spices. Pour into a 13” x 9” cake pan and back at 350 ° for 55 to 60 minutes. Cook sauce for 5 minutes, almost to boiling.
