METHOD

To prepare cake, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Toast walnuts in a small baking pan in the oven until fragrant, for 5 to 10 minutes. Whisk flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Whisk eggs, sugar, buttermilk, oil, vanilla and 1/2 cup of the reserved pineapple juice in a large bowl until blended. Stir in pineapple, carrots and coconut. Add the dry ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula just until blended. Stir in the nuts. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, spreading evenly. Bake the cake until the top springs back when touched lightly and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, for 40 to 45 minutes. Let it cool completely on a wire rack. To prepare frosting and finish cake, place coconut in a small baking pan and toast in the oven at 300 degrees Fahrenheit, stirring several times, until light golden, for 5 to 10 minutes. Beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Spread the frosting over the cooled cake. Sprinkle with the coconut.
