I made the same cake for a friend`s birthday party last summer and used Cream Cheese Frosting. I was worried that the frosting may not hold so well or melt due to the warm weather. But to my surprise, it endured and stayed in shape the whole day even at room temperature.

I made this particular carrot cake you see in the photos above last month to replace the old “ugly” pictures I took when I was just starting to blog. I added some whole pecan nuts at the bottom of the pan before pouring the batter for baking and it made a delicious crust. I also sprinkled the surface of the cream cheese frosting with cinnamon and it was a heavenly combination!

  1. Hi!

    I will definitely try doing this soon, as I really like how your egg pie recipe turned out (I believe you make good cakes too!) I just want to ask if I can use butter (salted or unsalted?) instead of oil for this recipe? I just don’t like how moist (and thick) banana bread turns out when using oil instead of butter. I am concerned if using oil for carrot cake will lead to same result. Thank you!
