Perfectly moist and decadent carrot cake is full of carrot goodness and topped with a cream cheese frosting. This recipe is perfect for spring and summer!
My grandma makes THE best carrot cake. It’s one of my very favorite things that she bakes and I can’t get enough. My cousin’s wedding cake was even Grandma’s famous carrot cake. It’s so good it’s ridiculous.
I decided to give Grandma’s carrot cake recipe a go without actually making the recipe. I wanted to make the recipe my own, but still give it that yummy touch that Grandma is so good at. I created the recipe, called her up, and asked her a few questions about some of my ingredient choices. She told me that my recipe sounded a lot like hers just different measurements. I’ll take it!
There’s something about this time of year that makes me want carrot cake all the time. It’s like the unofficial dessert of spring. This cake is the perfect dessert for Easter dinner or for any Sunday dinner! I absolutely love it. The hardest part is getting those carrots shredded. And since that isn’t even hard, this cake is pretty much a breeze.
