If you’ve tried the pumpkin version of this cake, you’ll know how scrumptiously moist and fluffy it is, and how incredibly quick and easy it is to make. And if you love carrot cake like I do, well… that just makes this cake all the better!

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!

Instructions

For the Cake

You can bake this cake 1 day in advance. Allow to cool completely, then cover tightly and keep in the fridge until ready to frost and serve. This cake also freezes well for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge before serving.

      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.

    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.

    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

    This is just what I was looking for – thank you! My mother-in-law’s birthday is this weekend and I wanted something a little bit different than the normal carrot cake I always make her.
    I can’t wait to try this
