Carrot cake anything and we're pretty much sold. Whether that's Carrot Cake Cupcakes, Carrot Cake Blondies or even Carrot Cake Balls (you heard me), we're obsessed with those sweet, carrot-y flavours. It makes the best dessert, and also tastes delicious alongside a hot cuppa. So, if you fancy baking up a carrot storm this weekend, check out our favourite carrot cake recipes now.
Classic Carrot Cake
We understand that there's no short supply of carrot cake recipes in the universe, but ours is—quite simply—the best.
Carrot Cake Traybake with Ricotta, Orange and Thyme Frosting
Carrot cake traybake is one of our favourite springtime bakes to make. The ricotta frosting is a deliciously light and tangy twist on the classic cream cheese topping. Thyme might sound unusual here but the subtle herbal flavour works perfectly with the warming spices and orange flavour in the cake.
Carrot cake is great. Carrot cupcakes are even better. Every bite is filled with warm spice and sweet carrots and topped with the most delicious cinnamon cream cheese frosting. It's the perfect upgrade to your dessert table.

Slow Cooker Carrot Cake
We absolutely LOVE carrot cake, and this slow cooker version is an absolute game-changer. You won’t have to worry about over-baking this little guy. He’s a bit denser and squidgier than a regular carrot cake, and that is no bad thing.
This classic carrot cake is so flavourful, so moist, and so chock-full of goodness (toasted coconut! pineapple! walnuts!) that we doubt you'd ever suspect it was gluten free. The cream cheese frosting helps too. 😉
