Nothing says, “It’s springtime or Easter!” quite like a slice of delicious Carrot Cake! This is the best of the best!
One of my family’s Easter traditions is Carrot Cake. I always bake one up for Easter Sunday. This is my go-to recipe! I love that it’s impressive and beautiful with the two layers. Decorate it how you like with nuts or extra cream cheese frosting. I chose to keep it simple with chopped pecans.
No matter how you serve it, this cake is absolutely divine!
What are your Easter traditions? Do they include carrot cake? Shredding the carrots is a bit labor intensive, but it’s well worth it! Especially once you take that first bite, you’ll be thanking yourself.
The carrots make it moist and tender and lend incredible flavor! If you’re one of those who think carrots don’t belong in cake, give this one a try! I dare you! I’m pretty sure you’ll love it! 🙂
I shred my carrots super fine, so you almost don’t even notice they’re there.
For Easter dinner, I’ll be serving up baked ham, cheesy potatoes, homemade rolls, green salad or veggies and this cake for dessert! My family looks forward to it! We’ll be having an egg hunt and the kids will have fun surprises in their basket that morning.
I’ve been making this cake for years and I’ll continue to do so every spring! If you love carrot cake, but would rather not make it in layered form, be sure to try this Carrot Cake Sheet Cake! And you definitely wont’ want to miss out on these Carrot Cake Cookies!
I hope you have a wonderful Easter filled with good company and great food!
