The Best Carrot Cake Recipes That Will Make You Go Hungry

As a child, I never understood why anyone would choose carrot cake over, say, chocolate, or ice cream, or any other high-in-sugar, low-in-natural-produce gooey delight. I found it plain wrong mixing vegetables with desserts and gave my father looks that would kill whenever he’d order carrot cake (his favorite dessert) at a restaurant. Over time, I moved past my limited palette and menu prejudice, and discovered a new world of textured delight found beneath creamy frosting. At 33-years-old, I am proud to call myself a “carrot cake convert”.

Sure they’ve got a boring name, and will never compete with the aesthetics of a Bombe Alaska or a Black Forrest Gâteau, yet you can’t help but respect their understated elegance and the gift of nighttime vision they bestow upon their eater.

These 10 carrot cake recipes that I’ve painstakingly scoured the World Wide Web for, will have you salivating into your lap before you can say “pass me a spork”.

1. Del’s Best Ever Carrot Cake

This self-proclaimed “Best Ever Carrot Cake” recipe has a lot to live up to, but with an unwavering commitment to freshness, moisture and that all important crunch – it has earned its stripes in my eyes.

2. Bourke Street Bakery’s Carrot Cake

Hailing from Sydney, Australia, I’m spoilt for choice when it comes to fashionable cafes spawning bearded hipsters and inflated prices; Bourke Street Bakery being one of them. But what this boulangerie lacks in humility, it makes up for in flavor. I’m yet to find a carrot cake that slides down easier with a morning Earl Grey than this one does.
