This carrot cake is loaded with 3 large carrots. If you’re making carrot cake, what’s the point in skimping on the carrots? 😉 Add more if you like (or less), it’s totally up to you!

The cream cheese frosting is deliciously sweet and creamy, and pairs perfectly with the cake. I simply transfer the frosting to a piping bag, cut off the end to create a small hole, then I pipe onto the cooled cake. So easy, and makes the cake look so pretty!

    • Hi Tina! I replied to your previous question, but I’ll answer again for you 🙂 You can use 1/4 cup applesauce (63g) per egg (you won’t taste the applesauce!), or 1/4 cup mashed banana per egg, or even 1/4 cup (60ml) vegetable oil per egg.

  1. First off, carrot cake is wonderful and I could probably eat this frosting for breakfast. Plus this cake looks so moist! I want to reach through the computer and take a slice.

  2. Totally no point in skimping on carrot when you’re making carrot cake, that’s for sure! This has got to be the best way to eat carrots… haha. Wouldn’t it be loads of fun to make this cake for Easter, covered in little eggs and other assorted Easter candy? 🙂
    Meanwhile, this is the most perfect bundt cake I’ve ever seen. 🙂 I love how beautifully golden it is… plus, that drizzle is AMAZING!! I’ll be dreaming of this beauty all weekend. I hope you have a great one with your fam, Marsha! xo
