To Die For Carrot Cake

Learn how to make carrot cake with this mouth-watering recipe for To Die For Carrot Cake recipe. Everyone knows that carrot cake is one of the most classic Easter dessert recipes. However, making a carrot cake has never been this easy or delicious. The only preparation this cake takes is combining all of the ingredients together. One of the best parts about this recipe, though, is the wonderful homemade cream cheese frosting. It's the perfect match for the sweet and subtly spicy cake. The end result of this recipe is a carrot cake that you'll want to make all the time.
Baking Tip from the Editor: When making this recipe for To Die For Carrot Cake, make sure you peel and then finely grate the carrots by using the smallest holes on your grater. If the grated carrots are too thick and heavy, they will sink to the bottom of the cake. You can also pat dry the finely grated carrots before mixing them in the cake batter. Doing so will ensure the cake batter does not get too wet.


So, how did we begin serving carrot cake to celebrate Easter, anyway? Carrot cake is a wildly popular Easter dessert in the U.S. today, but it has actually been around for quite a while. Some have speculated that carrot cake has its origins in the carrot pudding that was made in medieval times. Carrots served as a natural sweetener. Vegetables and cake may seem like an odd combination, but it is actually more common than you might think. Beets are another vegetable that is often used in baked goods.  

Carrot cakes likely caught on as an Easter dessert because they fit the “Easter bunny” theme, since carrots are considered bunny’s favorite treat. Today, carrot cake is almost always topped with cream cheese frosting (that’s the best way to do it!), and often pineapple or raisins are mixed in to the cake batter. However this holiday tradition came about, we are glad we get to enjoy it!
