    I don't drain the pineapple juice. Just dump it in. A little more moisture won't hurt.

    Will be doing the carrot cake great recipes. I am allergic to oranges in any form, and in England there is a growing trend to put orange zest in carrot cakes. Great to see in US very sensible no orange. Hip hip hip.

    Combine all ingredients, using a mixer. If necessary add a few drops of water till the right consistency. I generally do not
    need any water.
