Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I have this recipe that I have used for a while, it actually is an Amish recipe.  This is my husband's favorite cake.  I make it for him every year for his birthday.

Carrot Cake

3 eggs
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1-1/4 cups vegetable oil
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup walnuts, chopped
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
2 cups raw carrot shredded

Beat eggs well; then add the next 7 ingredients and beat well until smooth.  Stir in the coconut, nuts, pineapple and carrots with a mixing spoon.  Pour into a greased 9x13 cake pan and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 50 minutes.  When cake is slightly warm, spread with cream cheese frosting.
