Carrot Pineapple Cake

This recipe worked pretty well despite my nearly burning it up in the oven. I set my phone timer to alert me after 40 minutes and left the kitchen to browse the internets. I think there is a problem with the older app I was using in a new phone. After a while I thumbed the phone on to see how much time remained and it started beeping right away and showed the beeps should have been started 15 minutes ago. The edges were a bit crisp.

The batter seemed a bit thick so I added a bit of the drained pineapple juice to make it semi-pourable. A wise move, as it turned out. I didn’t bother with the frosting part since I had some store bought cream cheese icing ready to go.

ETA: I may have found the culprit for the fail with the phone timer. Samsung takes pains to preserve battery life and one of the ways it does this is to put background apps to sleep. This is at odds with the whole idea of a countdown timer. There is a way to opt a particular app out of this scheme and that is what I have done. I set the timer for 40 minutes as before and am waiting it out. Wish me luck!

ETA: dagnabbit!
