Ultimate Carrot Cake:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, mix the eggs, buttermilk, oil, sugar, carrots, pineapple and vanilla.
Whisk in the flour mixture until incorporated.
Pour the batter it into the two cake pans, then bake for 30 to 35 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
Let the cake cool completely.
