The best carrot cake recipe that always turns out well. Carrot cake that does not fall, is moist and aromatic. You can grate the carrot and pineapple or squeeze the juice and use the pulp! This cake is a great way to use carrot juice waste. This carrot cake tastes great with cream cheese frosting.

What should you put into the carrot cake?
You can layer the carrot cake or spread some cream cheese frosting on top.

What can I replace cream cheese with?
Instead of making icing with butter, powdered sugar and cream cheese, you can whip mascarpone with powdered sugar.

How long can carrot cake last?
Store the carrot cake with icing in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. A cake without icing or cream does not have to be stored in the refrigerator. Just cover them and keep them on the kitchen counter.

How to check if the carrot cake is baked?
To make sure that the carrot cake is baked inside, insert a wooden stick in the middle of the cake – if the stick comes out dry, it means that the cake is ready and you can remove it from the oven.

Carrot cake is perfect for people on a vegetarian, flexitarian and pescatarian diet. Carrot cake contains gluten.
