Carrot Cake and I have this love hate relationship. I love a good carrot cake, I hate that I can’t find it. I used to actually travel 20 miles out of my way to buy Carrot Cake at this bakery in Loma Linda (so good, and I never did figure out what the crunchy bits on the side are). Sadly, they no longer make it, so was time to make my own. Luckily I found the BEST Carrot Bundt Cake Recipe.
This one is pretty darn good, and it travels well (being a bundt), and the Cream Cheese Frosting on top is yummy enough to just sit down and eat with a spoon (fair warning, if you do choose to eat an entire bowl of Cream Cheese frosting, your pants might get a little tight). Don’t fear the pineapple, it makes the carrot cake sweet and juicy (yes, I know, theoretically, carrots are sweet, but no one can legitimately claim they are juicy… I have no idea where the carrot juice comes from).
One of the absolutely fabulous things about this recipe, is that the cake itself can be made without a mixer!!!! Yup, couple bowls and a spoon or spatula are all you need (you will need a mixer, or strong arms, for the frosting).
(BTW… you can sort of claim this is health food… after all, there is a full-ish serving of carrots in every slice! But that might be a bit like the Los Angeles School Board trying to convince everyone that Catsup is a vegetable, since it contains tomatoes).
