Georgia Strait | Jan 5, 2013 05:07 PM

hi - i want to make a carrot cake recipe from Bobs Red Mill website (the mill in Portland OR - the products are well-known in the Pac NW incl Vanc Canada) - and it asks for "8 ounces" of tinned (canned) pineapple - which size can is that? I am in Canada so we are used to metric and tins of food are measured in ml's

i have pasted the cake recipe below - and here is the link

BTW - this is a great carrot cake recipe and it uses the Bobs Red Mill "whole wheat PASTRY flour"

i usually double it to make a 9" diam round layer cake.

•1/2 cup Brown Sugar
•1/2 cup White Sugar
•1/2 cup Canola Oil
•2 Eggs
•1/2 tsp Salt
•1 tsp Cinnamon
•1 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
•1 cup Carrot, grated
•3/4 tsp Baking Soda
•1 tsp Baking Powder
•1/4 cup Walnuts- Baker's Pieces
•8 oz Pineapple, crushed and drained
