In a large bowl with an electric mixer, blend sugars. Add butter and mix to form a grainy paste. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add eggs and vanilla and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.. Add carrots, pineapple and nuts, and blend until combined. Batter will appear lumpy. Add flour mixture and blend at low speed until just combined.
