The Best Ever Carrot Cake–freshly grated carrots, pineapple, cinnamon, and nuts make for one delicious cake! This cake is topped with a cream cheese and butter frosting that is out of this world. It is requested for all of our family get togethers and there is never a piece left.
In my opinion, this is seriously The Best Ever Carrot Cake. This Carrot Cake is DELICIOUS! It is made with fresh carrots and has the most delicious cream cheese frosting. Once you try it, you will want to bake it for EVERY holiday, birthday, and get together.
I have a big family. There are 30 of us when we all gather together and we try our best to get together for every holiday and every chance in between holidays. So, with that being said, you better get in line for this cake–fast. Usually, there is not a piece of cake left! At times, I am too full from eating a big meal, that I have to hide my piece of cake for later….shhh! Don’t tell!!!
This cake is easy to make and super moist. The crushed pineapple and the freshly grated carrots are responsible for the moisture in this cake.
There is no way around it… you have to use freshly grated carrots. DO NOT buy pre-grated carrots thinking this will save you some time and effort… It will make a difference. Don’t be tempted!!! It only takes a few extra minutes to grate fresh carrots, especially if you have some sort of food grater. But, if you don’t have a food grater —no problem— do it by hand. Look at this way–you will be getting in a pre-workout and burning a few calories “before” you indulge in this delicious cake!
Not only is this cake delicious–the frosting is The Icing On The Cake! (Sorry, I couldn’t resist) This icing is beyond delicious. You will want to eat it by the spoonful. Make sure you add thick gobs of frosting between all of the layers and on top. In my opinion, more frosting is always better! This is truely out of this world!
I hope you and your family will enjoy this cake as much as my family and friends do. Maybe this cake will be requested at your next holiday gathering. Enjoy!!!
