A dessert like a carrot cake has been there and done to death we know. That is why this delicious Carrot Cake Cheesecake Cake recipe has been invented. This recipe with cheesecake in it is quite the twist to a traditional and simple carrot cake and its also easy to make. Now, why wouldn’t you want to try that? It’s killing two desserts at the same time. The cheesecake in this recipe comes out soft and super moist because of the water bath. The carrot cake, of course, is full of flavor with a spongy texture to it because of the oil in it which is a better option any day than using butter. Butter somehow makes things complicated in a simple carrot cake recipe because you don’t want a dense cake but rather a soft spongy, moist cake is preferable. This recipe for carrot cake is sandwiched between two carrot cakes with the cheesecake in the middle. The icing for carrot cake recipe cannot be other than cream cheese, so that’s a double bonus as well and tastes great with pecans in it. Be sure to make this cake a day or two in advance because of course, it tastes better that way. The cake ages as it sits because of the cream cheese in it and that is an important factor in this recipe.

Always keep in mind if you want a creamy, lump-free cheesecake, you will need to bring the cream cheese to room temperature. Having the cream cheese rest at room temperature helps in blending the remaining ingredients seamlessly and results in a smooth texture in cheesecakes. Carrots are part of the root vegetable group that is considered to be a health food. It is crunchy, tasty and highly nutritious especially with essential vitamins like vitamin C, and vitamin A. The nutrition in carrots is also very high regarding dietary fiber with practically no saturated fats present in it, and it is also cholesterol-free. With so many health benefits that come from the nutrition in carrots, it is a good idea to use them more often in our diet.

When baking cakes, always grate the carrots in a food processor to get an even texture. If you wish to bake this cake ahead of time, you can freeze it and thaw it on the day of serving with freshly made frosting. If you are aiming for a healthier cake, you can perhaps add grated zucchini to this cake along with honey as an alternative to sugar. You can even replace the all purpose flour with Spelt flour. Spelt is an ancient grain and a healthier substitute for wheat, and it also gives light and fluffy results in baking goods. This recipe is also good for baking cupcakes as well. You can decorate the cupcakes with colorful sprinkles on top of the frosting to give it a festive look. Don’t just stick to cinnamon alone for spices. You can add nutmeg or even pumpkin pie spice powder to the cake. Make it the way you like it. Either way, this carrot cake recipe will be the show-stopper.
