I made the same cake for a friend`s birthday party last summerand used Cream Cheese Frosting. I was worried that the frosting may not hold so well or melt due to the warm weather. But to my surprise, it endured and stayed in shape the whole day even at room temperature.

I made this particular carrot cake you see in the photos above last month to replace the old "ugly" pictures I took when I was just starting to blog. I added some whole pecan nuts at the bottom of the pan before pouring the batter for baking and it made a delicious crust. I also sprinkled the surface of the cream cheese frosting with cinnamon and it was a heavenly combination!

    What do you think?

  1. Alice says

    Hi Bebs,
    There is wheat and white flour in your recipe. Can I use all purpose flour instead or self raising flour? And what is the measurement? Is it the same still? Many thanks. I’ve been using your recipe and it always turns out good. Thank you for sharing your recipe. So simple to follow❤️


    • Bebs says

      Hi Alice, you can use all-purpose flour of course. The whole wheat flour is just for added texture to the cake.


  2. Apple says

    Hi Beb, do you have you’re cream cheese frosting recipe on the site?

    I will definitely try doing this soon, as I really like how your egg pie recipe turned out (I believe you make good cakes too!) I just want to ask if I can use butter (salted or unsalted?) instead of oil for this recipe? I just don't like how moist (and thick) banana bread turns out when using oil instead of butter. I am concerned if using oil for carrot cake will lead to same result. Thank you!


    • Bebs says

      Hi Chin, sure if you do not like your cake to be moist then use butter. I think 1 cup of butter should do it for this recipe. ????
