  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. In a large bowl, stir together the honey, buttermilk, eggs, oil and 2 teaspoons of vanilla until well blended. Add the flour mixture to the buttermilk mixture, and stir until all of the dry ingredients are absorbed. Stir in the carrot, pineapple, and walnuts by hand. Pour into the prepared pan.

Great healthy cake. For anyone wondering... I substituted whole wheat flour for 2 of the cups of flour with no ill effect. Also, I baked it in a bundt pan (the person I was baking it for could not have any type of icing, so I thought a bundt shape would be prettier), and it came out fine.

This was great! My husband is a health and fitness nut and didn't want a birthday cake that had any refined sugar. He loved this, and so did my kids, who have no problem gobbling down refined sugar! Glad to have found a cake to please everyone!

This is a great carrot cake recipe! As I keep finding with the cakes I've been making lately, this cake tastes even better after the day it is made. I used 2 9-inch rounds for this cake. I did find the frosting for this cake to be a bit "strange". It's mainly just cream cheese, and as a result, the honey "separated out" once I had iced the cake. By the second day, the cake was looking stranger and stranger (a brown, streaky appearance and the icing had split along the line where the two cake layers come together)...but it sure did taste good! If anyone has some tips to prevent this, please post!
