Best Carrot Cake Inspired Recipes




I’ve been obsessed with carrot cake for as long as I can remember. The spices, the fun mix-ins, the delicious frosting — what’s not to love? It also comes around in the spring when the sun is out longer and the days are warmer. Amazing carrot cake vibes all around.

Carrot cake is typically filled with warming flavors from spices like cinnamon and nutmeg and often has yummy toppings and mix-ins like chopped pecans, raisins, and shredded coconut. Over the years I’ve perfected even more ways to enjoy the flavors of carrot cake outside of an actual cake, and trust me, you’re going to LOVE these unique carrot cake inspired recipes.
