Carrot Cake Crumble Bars

No Comments Baking and Bars / Traybakes

Carrot cake is any cake made with… carrots. I’ve made carrot cake with pineapple, carrot cake cookies and carrot cake granola but I’ve never combined carrot cake and cheesecake… until now! These carrot cake bars have a carrot cake base, cheesecake swirled with carrot jam in the middle, then carrot crumble on top.

Carrot Cupcakes and Cake Pops

No Comments Baking and Cupcakes

The best type of cake – carrot cake. I planned to make mini bundt cakes but a lack of adequate greasing of my mould left me with half a batch of cupcakes and half a batch of crumbs. After wallowing in disappointment for a while, I decided that when life gives you crumbs, make cake pops!

Unusually, these have chocolate chips and nuts in. If you prefer carrot cake with no nuts, use 80g chocolate chips. I did an even split with 40g chocolate chips and 40g pecans.

Carrot Cake Granola

No Comments Baking

My favourite type of cake – carrot cake, condensed into something you can eat for breakfast. This smelled exactly like a carrot cake tastes shen it came out of the oven. Keep it in an airtight container for around a week.

Carrot Courgette Slices

No Comments Baking and Cupcakes

That’s a zucchini to American bakers. I made some chocolate courgette cupcakes last year which were interesting to try. These are like a cross between a carrot cake and gingerbread, with a fairly strong ginger flavour. If walnuts aren’t your thing, swap them out for any other nut or chocolate chips.

Carrot Cupcakes with Blueberry Cream Cheese Frosting

No Comments Baking and Cupcakes

Carrot cake is my kryptonite, I lived off it for an 8 month period while I was in Uni. These cupcakes are filled with nuts and cocoa powder so are a cross between a chocolate cake and a carrot cake. I used a standard cream cheese frosting, but they’re sweet enough without if you prefer.
