With its unusual flavor, luscious crunchy scrap, and smooth, creamy cheddar creme, this is truly a quality carrot cake. Use earthy colored sugar and toasted walnuts for even more deep flavor.
Growing up, my mother would constantly make my birthday party and the best emphasized item was a batch of carrot cake desserts as an afterthought. I even count on making my own carrot birthday cake every year. Moreover, we are clearly not limited to just one year. This Easter cake adorns the office and I love making spring brunch, baby showers, and a whole new home deal.
