Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
This super easy, fluffy and moist homemade Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting will become your new favourite recipe!
Finding a really good carrot cake recipe is hit or miss. They are either too dry, too much fruit, not enough flavour or overboard with spices. BUT this carrot cake recipe is one you will fall in love with! The perfect balance of flavour and spices PLUS the bonus of being super moist, airy and fluffy! Just what you want after waiting for what seems like an eternity to eat it!
You don’t need mad baking skills to make this cake and you certainly don’t need to be a chef of any kind (see below picture for terrible frosting and decorating example). If you’re like me and cannot frost or decorate a cake to save yourself, be completely comfortable in knowing that any type of decorating you do will be looked over when your family, friends or guests sink their teeth into a slice of this little piece of heaven. Especially when that perfect and creamy cream cheese frosting mixed through the flavours in this cake hits every taste bud.
What chocolate Easter eggs?
What makes this cake THE best carrot cake recipe?
Its texture. The texture in this cake is unbelievable. Yes, it’s fluffy and light as mentioned above, but its moist texture is unforgettable.
Three main ingredients help create that:
- Vegetable oil (or canola oil can be used)
- Brown sugar
- Fruit puree: think crushed pineapple or applesauce. We chose the pineapple option after trying it with applesauce and found blending crushed pineapple for a couple of seconds in a magic bullet or blender yielded the best results. You can also leave the fruit out and substitute with melted butter, however, you cannot taste the fruit in this at all.
With Easter looming over us, you now have the perfect cake to serve to your guests! Not a fan of carrot cake? Try this Fudgy Chocolate Cake, or this Hot Fudge Chocolate Pudding Cake!
