Mix together flour, cinnamon, soda, salt, carrots and pecans. Then combine sugar, oil, pineapple, eggs and vanilla and add to first mixture. Bake in greased and floured tube pan at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.
For Orange Glaze: Mix sugar and cornstarch in pan. Gradually add orange juice and stir until smooth. Add butter, orange peel and salt. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until thick. Let glaze cool completely before putting on cake.

Thanks for a carrot cake recipe that doesn't use cream cheese frosting. I am not a cheese lover and can't wait to try this recipe. Thanks Robin. (06/11/2009)
