Best way to make Yummy Carrot Cake

This is the first time I have ever been hesitant about sharing a recipe. Simply because it is so darn good and I want full credit for this one!

I used to have to make a special ‘cake of the day’ when I worked at this restaurant and I made this one every few days, which means I got to tweak the recipe every time and finally, I perfected it. Seriously.

This is the dessert I made for my 24, 24, 24 meal.
I hope you make it someday!

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • Using your electric mixer, cream together first 5 ingredients until smooth.
  • Add powdered sugar slowly until 4 cups have been added. I prefer my frosting a bit more thick so I used closer to 5 cups.



There is 3 cups of grated carrots in this cake (which took me a pound of carrots to get) so this cake is somewhat healthy... right? OK wrong. But it's SO good! I like to add lemon juice to my cream cheese frosting to make it more tangy. Oh and this cake stays moist for days, not that it will last that long!
