How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 350°F.  Spray 2 (9-inch) round cake pans with vegetable cooking spray.

Step 2

Stir the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and ginger in a medium bowl.

Step 3

Beat the granulated sugar, oil and eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed for 5 minutes.  Stir in the carrots, walnuts, and pineapple.  Stir in the flour mixture.  Pour the batter into the pans.

Step 4

Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.  Let the cakes cool in the pans on wire racks for 15 minutes.  Remove the cakes from the pans and let cool completely on wire racks.

Step 5

Beat the Neufchâtel cheese, butter and vanilla extract in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high speed for 2 minutes or until the mixture is smooth and creamy.  Beat in the confectioners' sugar.  Add the reserved pineapple juice, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the frosting is the desired consistency.  Fill and frost the cake.
