Everyone needs a good old classic, Homemade Carrot Cake Recipe under their belt and this one is mine!
This cake is filled with shredded carrots, juicy pineapple and studded with pecans. I’ve topped it with the very best (and super simple) cream cheese frosting, for the ultimate carrot cake experience!
I’ve noticed that I make a lot of variations of classic recipes on my site, but always forget to share originals!
It’s time that changed! This is my favorite recipe for carrot cake because it is filled to the brim with freshly shredded carrots and loads of spice!
I even threw in some crushed pineapple, but you’ll want to make sure to squeeze a fair amount of juice out before adding it.
I tossed in a cup of finely chopped pecans to the cake batter too.
If you’re not a fan of nuts, feel free to leave them out!
Once the cake is baked and cooled it’s time to make a super simple cream cheese frosting!
Nothing goes better with carrot cake than a cream cheese frosting, am I right?!
This frosting is so easy! All you need is some softened butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar and a little bit of vanilla extract!
You can make the frosting with a hand mixer or with a stand mixer, either way works great!
Spread the frosting over the cooled cake and sprinkle a few extra chopped pecans on top.
This perfectly spiced cake is exactly what you need!
The combination of moist cake and creamy frosting is a match made in heaven!
You’re not going to find a better recipe than this one!
