This is our favorite carrot cake recipe. This carrot cake is 100% from scratch, easy to make, versatile and utterly delicious. One of our most popular recipes! Just read all the rave reviews!
For the carrots, we prefer to hand grate for the finest carrot pieces that melt into the cake batter, but you can also use a food processor. It makes quick work of grating carrots, but the pieces will be slightly larger. Some grocery stores sell bags of grated carrots, as well. This recipe is forgiving. You can make this with or without the nuts and raisins. We like using both granulated and brown sugar in this, but using one or the other is an option
**The creamy frosting recipe shared on our recipe page is a soft frosting and is not ideal for frosting the entire cake. It is more the consistency of stabilized whipped cream, rather than traditional cream cheese frosting. For a more traditional cream cheese frosting, see the notes section in the recipe on Inspired Taste. The full recipe can be found here: https://www.inspiredtaste.net/25753/carrot-cake-recipe/
Why don’t we include exact ingredient amounts in our videos?
We get this question a lot so we thought it was time to explain. We like to keep our videos short and to the point, but want to make sure they are in a format that you can follow along. We work hard to include enough useful information to help home cooks of all levels. We also try to make each video easy to fast forward and rewind.We make everything in our own kitchen so we know you can too. We frequently include alternative methods and ingredient substitutions in our recipes to accommodate for different diets and the equipment you may (or may not) have at home. It isn’t always the easiest to keep the video short while also including exact ingredient amounts along with all of the possible substitutions and variations.It’s important to us that everyone can successfully make our recipes so we like to have all the information you need all in one place, which is in the full recipe on our blog. This also makes sure that viewers that stumble onto our YouTube channel are aware of the in-depth information provided for each recipe on Inspired Taste. Happy Cooking!
