3/4 cup shredded carrots
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Beat in the eggs and then stir in the pineapple and carrots. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; stir into carrot mixture. Mix in the walnuts if desired.
