Kick Up Your Carrot Cake Game This Easter

Brianna Kozlarek / Wednesday March 28, 2018

Carrot cake is my absolute favorite dessert of all time. It is the highlight of our Easter spread and always the first thing to be devoured. The problem with carrot cake, well, there isn’t really a problem with it, but the situation that seems to occur is that carrot cake becomes the exact same thing every single year. Cream cheese frosting, mini frosted carrots on top and a sprinkle of chopped walnuts.

Not this year, friends. This year, we kick things up a notch, and don’t worry there is plenty to go around. If you are looking for a “not your average” carrot cake recipe for the biggest carrot cake fans, these recipes will cover it. From brunch to dessert, whoopie pies to trifles, there is something for everyone. The best part? It’s all carrot cake flavored. Even grandma won’t be bothered that you didn’t use her famous recipe this year after she takes one bite of Carrot Cake Cheesecake Crumble Bars.

Step away from the “same old” this Easter and enjoy these new ways to indulge in carrot cake.  The hardest part will be deciding which to make first!
