If you’re a carrot cake aficionado, then you already know how important it is to achieve that quintessential carrot taste when you bake a carrot cake recipe. Not much needs to be said about how tasty this Super Moist Carrot Cake recipe is! This recipe will turn out so chunky and flavorful because it is like the in-between version of a hummingbird cake and carrot cake together. There are tangy pineapple bits along with chewy coconut flakes and who can go wrong with chopped nuts and of course the wonderful carrots! The cake has three layers, and the frosting recipe makes just enough to cover the whole cake generously. Also if you’re not too fond of using store-bought frosting, then this frosting recipe is a great one to try out as well. Just one tip while making the frosting if it appears to be too thick you can add a tablespoon of milk at a time until it reaches the consistency you want. For occasions like birthdays and anniversaries, this carrot cake recipe is ideal because it is something everyone will enjoy.

Carrots have always been known for essential vitamins like vitamin C, and vitamin A. The nutrition in carrots is also very high regarding dietary fiber with no saturated fats and also is practically cholesterol-free. With so many health benefits that come from the nutrition in carrots, it is hard not to use them in desserts. If you wish to make this cake ahead of time, you can freeze it and thaw it on the day of serving with freshly made frosting. If you are into cupcakes, then go ahead and turn this cake into little cupcake beauties by all means. It makes for a wonderful presentation too. For a slightly citrus flavor, you could add orange or lemon zest. A carrot cake is never complete without different spices so you could pretty much add nutmeg powder or even pumpkin pie spice to give it a stronger flavor. Make it the way you like it. Either way, this carrot cake recipe will be the show-stopper.

Remember always to stack your spice jars with fresh spices. Spices tend to lose their flavor and aroma if they have not been used for a long time. It is true that spice powders or whole spices do not have a long shelf life. To get the best results for a cake like this one, it is best to use fresh spices. Using pure vanilla extract in the place of artificial flavor will also impact the taste in any cake recipe. Look for the best vanilla extract with no additives like corn syrup, sugar, etc.
