Cheesecake Swirl Carrot Bundt Cake
Source: Sallys Baking Addition
Cheesecake swirl carrot bundt cake. Yes, this is absolutely as good as it sounds. I am obsessed with carrot cake 🥕
When I was pregnant with Casey and my appetite was going crazy for some reason carrot cake was all I carroted about
It was like a movie, my poor husband was taking trips to the grocery store in the dead of winter to buy me a carrot cake because I was also too pregnant and lazy to be baking. Bless his heart (sometimes)
The bundt cake in this recipe has a brown sugar flavoring throughout, and the cheesecake batter is layered between the carrot cake batter. Your taste buds won’t even be able to process the deliciousness of this recipe!
Carrot Cake Recipe

This recipe is to die for!
I made this the night before Easter to have as our dessert and my kids, oh, AND, my husband absolutely loved this carrot cake. This has more frosting than a normal store made carrot cake, which makes it that much better
There is also fresh pineapple used, and you guys. I didn’t realize what adding this would do to the cake. It was so much sweeter and moist
I truly believe I found the secret to the perfect carrot cake, and it is 100% within this recipe!
Carrot Cake Cupcakes With Cream Cheese Frosting

When I first started baking in college I found myself asking “what is a carrot cake?” I mean seriously, how had I eaten it all these years and not genuinely wondered what it was
Now I know that a carrot cake is just a layered cake with grated carrots mixed into the batter and a buttercream or cream cheese frosting
I thought a carrot cake was made out of essentially only carrots and frosting which didn’t really make any sense but I didn’t question it
What I love about these carrot cake cupcakes is the cream cheese frosting. I find carrot cake to be a lot more plain when there isn’t a lot of frosting involved, but that’s also coming from the person who’s password to most things is frosting including the security question “what is your favorite food?”
These cupcakes are moist, pretty looking, and covered in frosting. What’s not to love about that?
The Ultimate Keto Carrot Cake

My best friend and her husband have been following the ketogenic lifestyle for about three years now. It seems nearly impossible for me given the way my children and husband eat, but if you’re rocking the keto life this recipe will not disappoint!
I showed my keto friend this recipe and she actually went ahead and made it about a month ago. She’s big into baking and does not mess around when it comes to new recipes that suit the diet. She absolutely loved this!
I was able to sample a piece and it tasted just as good, if not BETTER than the original recipe I had made
This is worth the bake for sure!
Carrot Cake Roll

Carrot cake in swiss roll form, what could be better than that? Wow is all I have to say about this recipe!
This takes everything you love about classic carrot cake and adds a surprise cream cheese filling twist to it. This would be perfect to bring to a sports event for your kids, party at school, or for a tasty dessert after dinner on a warm (or cold if you’re in Michigan) night.
I liked the uniqueness of this recipe, but also how easy it was to prepare
Plus, it turns out absolutely delicious. You won’t want to miss out on this!
Carrot Cake Banana Bread

A banana a day keeps the doctor away! Am I mixing up fruits here?
Regardless, who isn’t a fan of banana bread? For some reason, it took my kids so long to try banana bread.
These picky little eaters just could not fathom the idea of banana not only becoming bread but tasting as delicious as it was in the process of doing so. I’ll be honest, I got sick of their sh** 😜
And when I get sick of something, I take action. I put cinnamon on top, a little bit of frosting, and told my kids the first Friday morning of trying banana bread that they were having “cinnamon toast frosting bread”
Just as I had imagined, a hit. An absolute hit. I broke the news to them of what they were really eating and it has been a game changer for the last two years. The only problem is….
They HAVE to have frosting on their banana bread
Because I’m such a fan I had the pleasure of baking this carrot cake banana bread and I tell you what, SO GOOD, It was like putting frosting on banana bread for the first time (which if you haven’t done this do it)
It’s easy to make, uses natural ingredients, and your kids will love it
The best part about it? There’s already frosting on top 🥕
Best Ever Carrot Cake Sheet Cake

A sheet cake feeds many many mouths, and that’s what I love so much about this carrot cake sheet cake
This recipe is perfect for a large schooling or sporting event for your kids
It takes few ingredients, is easy to prepare, and turns out absolutely delicious! They don’t call this the best ever carrot cake sheet cake for nothing
Chocolate Carrot Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

I am here for this chocolate carrot cake with cream cheese frosting! I am not always in the mood for chocolate on chocolate, but when I am, I AM.
My husband would want me to tell this funny story about how in college on my 21st birthday I forced him to get in his car while I was 21st birthday style drunk and he was stone cold sober and he drove all around town trying to find me a chocolate ice cream cone
Everything was closed and I was so upset that the Mcdonald’s ice cream machine was down (as always) I was crying…. CRYING!
We finally made the pit stop to Meijer and he bought me a carton. True love, right?
Well, this is carrot cake is too chocolatey, gooey, and decadent to pass up. If you have chocolate lovers at home this is absolutely the recipe for you!
Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies

These carrot cake sandwich cookies sound absolutely amazing!
This recipe takes all the flavors of the classic carrot cake and loads them into soft and chewy cookies with a cream cheese frosting filling
At only 250 calories per cookie, this is a dessert you can even FREEZE if needed!
These cookies will be just as good that way and you can pick and choose when to use them. For as delicious as they are, 250 calories is about the same as a regular store bought ice cream sandwich, and I can guarantee that these carrot cake cookie sandwiches are much better
Mini Carrot Cake Cookies

For such a small body these mini carrot cake cookie bites take up a whole lot of room in my heart!
We made these for Casey’s end of the school year party and here’s the summary of the turnout. These made 80 ish cookies. I had two the night before. There are 19 people in my daughters class and one teacher.
The cookies were GONE!
I was expecting to be able to eat more when she brought them home and I can honestly say I was genuinely disappointed when there were none left
These have a carrot cake feel mixed with a no-bake and cream cheese twist. They are to DIE for
Carrot Cake Bars

If you’ve been following me for some time then you know that I live the bar lifestyle…
Not the place they serve alcohol, but the dessert 🍰
I think cookie bars, sandwich bars, cake bars, and in this case carrot cake bars are practical, delicious, and can be used for so many different events
These carrot cake bars, in my opinion, are better than cake. They store better in the fridge, and the smaller portion sizes make for more bites with frosting
Plus, they stay moist. I think if you’re a bar fan this is definitely try this spring!
Carrot Cake Trifle

You’re a trifling criminal if you aren’t as into this carrot cake trifle as I am!
I thoroughly enjoy a good trifle. As a little girl, my mother used to let me pick which dessert she was going to make for me and my family on my birthday
I come from a sibling group of five, so this was a regular occurrence and we were always eating homemade goodies
I’m sure it has something to do with my obsession for baking today and for the need to make my kids happy with the treats made
I always chose brownie trifle
It had brownies, strawberries, and cool whip. That was it. Something about the mixture of this was so delicious, and I love cold treats.
This trifle is exactly that with a carrot cake twist to it! Trifle is extremely easy to bring to events, and even easier to scoop out to kids. I think this would be a perfect recipe this spring and I definitely intend on trying it out
My mom (my kid’s grammy) would be very proud!
