A delicious carrot cake but with a tropical touch since it has grated coconut and canned pineapple. In addition to being very rich it looks amazing because of the three layers of cake and bitumen.

Consejo Solo le quitaría el bicarbonato y le pondría polvo para hornear, con el bicarbonato queda un sabor raro después de comer el pastel.
