This easy-to-prepare carrot cake recipe includes a sweet, savory and moist dessert with a refreshing soft cream cheese frosting that everyone will enjoy.


The Grandma Carrot Cake recipe is easy

The classic combination of sweet carrot cake with cream cheese flavor is a tried-and-true recipe that our family has been indulging in for years.


While cream cheese is delicious, our kids prefer it without it. If we’re really feeling fancy, we simply sprinkle some powdered sugar on top of it.
