Mini Carrot Cake- Pinterest Recipe Review

 Mini Carrot Cake- Pinterest Recipe Review : The PIN The RECIPE
Happy Easter Everyone! If you're like me, you need to make two carrot cakes for two separate Easter Dinners. This has been my favorite carrot cake recipe for a few years now, it's really moist, flavorful, and the batter comes together really quickly. (Especially if you have a standing mixer.) 
The recipe required:
  • Carrots (3 cups grated)
  • Sugar
  • Flour
  • Salt
  • Cinnamon + Cake Spice (I use Nutmeg instead of the cake spice)
  • 6 Egg Whites
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Apple Sauce
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Cream Cheese
I mostly follow the recipe, except for my substitution of Nutmeg for the Cake Spice, and I always make a few additions. This year I added a few dried cranberries and golden raisins to my batter, since I prefer dried fruit in my carrot cake, and I split my batter into three pans to form two thin layer cakes.

The finished cake is sweet, moist, well spiced, and best of all...EASY. If you're looking for a delicious, and visually impressive, dessert for your Easter table, I highly recommend this recipe.
