Indulge in Homemade Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing 🥕🍰 by Top Real Estate Agent, Lainie Eilenberger

Welcome to my kitchen, where I'm excited to share one of my favorite recipes with you – homemade carrot cake with luscious cream cheese icing. This classic dessert is perfect for any occasion, whether it's a family gathering, a special celebration, or simply a sweet treat to enjoy with a cup of coffee.


For the Carrot Cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 ½ tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • 4 large eggs

  • 2 cups grated carrots

  • 1 cup crushed pineapple, drained

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

For the Cream Cheese Icing:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 4 cups powdered sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.

  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl.

  3. Combine Wet Ingredients: Mix sugar, oil, and eggs until smooth. Gradually add dry ingredients, stirring until combined.

  4. Fold in Carrots and Pineapple: Fold in carrots, pineapple, and nuts (optional) until evenly distributed.

  5. Bake the Cake: Divide batter between pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool completely.

  6. Prepare the Cream Cheese Icing: Beat cream cheese and butter until creamy. Gradually add powdered sugar and vanilla, beating until smooth.

  7. Assemble the Cake: Spread icing between layers and over top and sides of cake.

  8. Decorate and Serve: Garnish with nuts or shredded carrots. Slice and enjoy!
