Carrot cake has always been one of my favorite cakes.
I am not however a fan of boxed carrot cake mix. Don’t get me wrong, I am a big fan of cake mixes they can make life a lot simpler but I like to be able to see the carrot in my cake! Otherwise, it is spice cake!
I like cream cheese frosting on my carrot cake but if you aren’t a fan here is my recipe for homemade buttercream frosting, delish!
I made this recipe as a cake for a friend’s daughter’s birthday, you can find the step-by-step directions here.
This recipe is a little time consuming but worth every minute! You start by grating the carrots. I know sounds like a lot of work but it is worth it! Use a food processor to grate the carrots it will make it go a lot quicker!
I love making this recipe in cupcake form, portion control! They also freeze well and you can pop them out of the freezer as you need them.
