Pineapple Carrot cake

Posted by Bill DeBoer on Apr 3, 2020 11:53:35 AM


Carrot Cake  


For the cake:

2 cups granulated sugar

1 1/3 cups vegetable oil

3 extra-large eggs, at room temperature

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, divided

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 cup raisins

1 cup chopped walnuts

1 pound carrots, grated

1/2 cup diced fresh pineapple

For the frosting:
3/4 pound cream cheese, at room temperature

1/2 pound unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 pound confectioners' sugar, sifted

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter 2 (8-inch) round cake pans. Line with parchment paper, then butter and flour the pans.

For the cake:
Beat the sugar, oil, and eggs together in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until light yellow. Add the vanilla. In another bowl, sift together 2 1/2 cups flour, the cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Toss the raisins and walnuts with 1 tablespoon flour. Fold in the carrots and pineapple. Add to the batter and mix well.
Divide the batter equally between the 2 pans. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool completely in the pans set over a wire rack.

For the frosting:
Mix the cream cheese, butter and vanilla in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until just combined. Add the sugar and mix until smooth.

Place 1 layer, flat-side up, on a flat plate or cake pedestal. With a knife or offset spatula, spread the top with frosting. Place the second layer on top, rounded side up, and spread the frosting evenly on the top and sides of the cake.

Keep Your Business Moving Forward With Personalized Fleet Services

Posted by Bill DeBoer Jr. on Mar 24, 2020 11:35:05 AM

At DeBoer’s Auto, we believe all vehicles can go 250,000 miles without any issues. However, this requires regular and timely repairs and maintenance to be achieved. By doing so, you could realistically save upwards of $100,000 when you factor in the cost of paying for expensive repairs due to ignoring warning signs or even buying new vehicles every couple of years. This isn’t very time efficient nor cost-effective for fleet owners, so we offer personalized fleet services to help you keep your vehicles on a regular schedule for maintenance and repairs to ensure your business is moving forward.

Understanding The Inspection Requirements For Your Commercially Registered Vehicle

Posted by Bill DeBoer Jr. on Mar 19, 2020 4:47:40 PM

The vehicle inspection program in New Jersey has made changes in recent years that many people may not know about. Some of these important changes were made to commercially registered vehicles as well. If you’re unsure whether your vehicle has a commercial registration, check your registration card and look for the “registration code 11”. The license plate of the vehicle will also begin with an “X” if it is commercially registered. These vehicles fall under different guidelines than regular passenger vehicles and here are a few of the important factors you need to know about the process.

My Nan's Corned Beef Recipe

Posted by Bill DeBoer Jr. on Mar 6, 2020 6:31:28 PM

My Nan, Ruth Salmon, was from Hazelton, PA; Pennsylvania Dutch country. She married my Grandfather John Paul Salmon in 1946. His family migrated to America from Ireland during the potato famine. Although Nan wasn't of Irish heritage, she did everything she could to make him happy. His family was large and they loved to gather for all occasions, especially Saint Patrick's Day. Her first attempt at St.Patrick's Day dinner was a disaster. But after a few trials, she nailed the "Best Corned Beef in America and Ireland!" Well at least according to John. 😉 From that day forward Nan's St. Patrick's Day Dinner always drew a crowd and she was famous for her corned beef. She kept her recipe a secret until late into her adult life. It was a way she could get all the kids and grandchildren (and now great grandchildren) together.

Posted by Bill DeBoer on Feb 24, 2020 12:48:47 PM

 Some business owners employ mobile workforces. They need to provide company vehicles to their employees. In some cases business owners, or a  general manager will make decisions to maintain the fleet and make sure that all the services on the vehicles are being kept up on. In other cases, businesses will hire a fleet company which is contracted to handle all of the maintenance of the fleet. In the case of national fleet companies, they can dictate which automotive service shops can handle your vehicle. There are times when going to these locations for service is inconvenient for you. We at DeBoer’s Auto work with many national fleet companies.
