Enjoy this Nutty Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting recipe today; this cake is one of the very best while also being one of the easiest that you could make for you and the kids. And this Nutty Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting recipe adds a simple candy brittle that adds just an extra and original touch of style to this already fabulous cake. This cake is so delicious for many reasons. One of the reasons this cake is so good is just because it is made with oil, a lot of interesting ingredients such as nuts and pineapple and eschews the use of butter and milk products. Certainly cake that is made with butter and milk is a delicious creation, but when you omit those ingredients from a cake recipe, it allows other flavors to come forward that you might otherwise miss. In this Nutty Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting recipe that is precisely what happens. Without the milk and butter, the flavors of the nuts (in this recipe, a combination of nuts, too) and pineapple can really come forward. The carrots in this recipe also add great texture and taste, too, and give this cake its characteristic look and feel.
This cake is not difficult to make, at all, although it does take a bit of preparation to bring all of the interesting ingredients together. So you could enlist the help of some little ones in the household or older, wanna be bakers who might be hanging around the day you make this cake. There are plenty of tasks. The carrots have to be grated, and the pineapple has to be opened and drained. The nuts need to be measured and possibly lightly chopped. Even when these tasks are done, there is the frosting to make. This Nutty Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting recipe calls on the classic cream cheese frosting. This particular recipe is an entirely classic version using both butter and cream cheese to make it. This is also a surprisingly easy frosting to make, so you could have an older baker try his or her hand at this one. One of the big secrets to making this frosting really good is whipping it sufficiently to get air in that makes the frosting light and creamy. Whipping this frosting for five to eight minutes would not be too much time.
Make this cake whenever you feel like serving yourself and your family something really special that takes less time to prepare than you might imagine. This easy to make cake delivers top taste and great texture as well as some pretty good ingredients such as carrots and nuts. Make this great cake soon!
