What’s wintery cold days without a delicious and classic carrot cake. I love carrot cakes, I was the one who introduced them to my younger siblings when I first got into baking and it’s been a favourite cake since then 🙂
My family and I like moist, soft and lightly spiced carrot cakes with no additional add ins like nuts or dried fruits or things like that. We enjoy it all velvety and smooth especially with the cream cheese frosting but I know that there are lots of people who do like chunky carrot cakes so I’ve added some notes below on how to incorporate these into the carrot cake so that we can all enjoy this cake .
I have a new found obsession with drizzling caramel sauce on my carrot cake it’s so insanely delicious, pairs so well with the flavours!
This is a super simple, no mixer required carrot cake that can be whipped up within minutes. I like to spice my carrot cakes mainly with cinnamon and something which I only recently discovered, fresh ginger. If you guys have never made carrot cakes with fresh ginger then you’re definitely missing out! The warm spice and extra zing it gives is super delicious and the aroma it gives is to die for.
I absolutely love cream cheese frosting! I’ve pretty much dolloped it on everything and of course carrot cake is no exception. This frosting is so delicious and silky, creamy and light, the perfect topping for this gorgeous carrot cake.
Delicious, ultra moist and easy. A perfect version of a classic carrot cake ❤
