Instructions

1
Preheat oven to 350°F.
2
Make frosting first by combining cream cheese, butter, salt, vanilla, and powdered sugar into a stand mixer with whisk attachment. Mix on low speed until just combined then raise speed to high to allow to whip until fluffy.
3
Add butterfinger pieces to frosting and mix on low to evenly incorporate into frosting. Set aside or refrigerate for later use.
4
In a large bowl, combine oil, butter, eggs, sugar, vanilla extract, ginger, cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg together. Whisk until well combined.
5
Add carrots and pineapple to wet sugar mixture and whisk well to combine. Set aside while combining all dry ingredients.
6
In a separate bowl, add flour, baking powder, salt and walnuts. Whisk to combine.
7
Mix dry ingredients into wet and with a spatula fold everything until well combined. Pour evenly into a well oiled 9 x 13 inch baking pan.
8
Bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick entered into center of cake pulls out clean.
9
Allow cake to cool completely before frosting. Serve immediately or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 24 hours to allow flavors to meld.
10
Chef's Note: Feel free to add 1 cup raisins if preferred or leave nuts out of recipe. For extra flavor allow spices to sit in wet mix before adding flour mixture for at least 20 minutes; this will allow flavors to bloom.
