With a mixer Beat eggs, add oil and buttermilk, sugar and vanilla. beat to combine. Stir together flour, salt, cinnamon and baking powder and stir into batter. stir in pineapple, carrots and raisins.
Pour into a greased 8 by 13 pan or 2 greased round 9 inch cake pans. Bake 35 to 45 minutes until set in the middle. Remove from the oven and immediatly spread with the buttermilk glaze. Cool completely and frost with the cream cheese frosting.
Buttermilk glaze:
In a medium sauce pan ( don't use a small pan) combine all ingredients but vanilla. Bring to a boil and cook 3 minutes stirring often...it will bubble a lot. It should be a light caramel color, stir in vanilla and pour over the cake
Cream cheese frosting:
Beat cream cheese and butter until light add vanilla powd. sugar and juice and rind...beat until smooth and frost the cooled cake.

I've got it cooling on the counter...
I love the variety with coconut and pecans...but the first thing my grand children will do when I put it on their plate is squint at it...get their heads down close to it, sniff....and ask...Does this have nuts in it? And I can truthfully say no...not "just pick out the nuts, deal with it!" LOL!

lindac - I've made this and it is absolutely delicious - thank you! I wanted to point out though that you list baking soda in the ingredient list, but in the instructions you refer to baking powder. That through me off for a moment lol! On another thread, I had asked if you had any other of Julie's great recipes that you could post or do you know where I can buy her cookbook? I tried googling to no avail.

The proper ingredient is baking soda!! LOL!
I have listed a link to a book store that carries her book.
I will say that I have never had anything made by her or from her cook book that is other than outstanding. She believes that if some butter is good more is better....and why not add cream as well! She's the one who taught me that current jelly fixes everything, from am over done roast, to blah carrots, to a roast chicken with a too white skin, to a pork chop that needs a sweet-ish sauce to a cookie that needs some filling!
I hope there are some of her books left!
