Kiss My Bundt! (A Carrot Cake Recipe)

carrot cake frosted

My mom used to serve this as a side dish rather than a dessert. That’s why I’ve always found it weird that actual carrot cakes have icing. Mom’s never did.

What she did do was make this cake in a bundt pan. And because I never had one, I didn’t even attempt making this thing. But when my mom replaced her bundt with something new, guess who got the hand-me-down?

That’s right, me. I fished out the recipe and went to work.

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 2 1/2 grated carrots
  • 1 1/2 cups flourAdd
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg

Cream Cheese Frosting

The last cream cheese frosting recipe you’ll ever need (Slashfood)

  • 8 oz. cold cream cheese
  • 5 tbsp. softened butter
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups confectionery sugar, added gradually

Directions

In a large bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar.

The next day, pack the dough into the bundt pan (should come about halfway up). Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees.

A little bundt in the oven.

Let cool in pan several minutes, then overturn onto a rack to cool completely. Ice with frosting.
