This week’s Baked Sunday Mornings challenge is for Classic Carrot Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting which is just delicious! The dense, moist cake is scented with cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and cloves and studded with walnuts and coconut. It makes me want to sing, “…these are a few of my favorite things…”! Oh, and the cream cheese frosting is blended with cinnamon. I could just eat this frosting with a spoon! I also think it would be wonderful sandwiched between a pair of oatmeal cookies!
|Mixing it all together!|
This cake comes together quickly and easily. The Baked Boys say it would be perfect for breakfast and we are willing to find out! Baked Elements is divided into chapters of their favorite flavors. If I wrote such a book, Coconut would definitely fill a chapter of its own. So, I couldn’t resist toasting an extra 1/2 cup to sprinkle on top of the yummy frosting.
If you’re a fan of carrot cake, this one is absolutely worth trying!

Sounds terrific, Susan! Yet another thing we have in common: our adoration of all things COCONUT! <3
It is classic cake indeed! I should try making it myself ðŸ™‚
Ha– I was totally thinking the same thing about a Coconut chapter! Nice job, and I like the layer of coconut on top. I thought about doing that, but then thought it might be overkill. Clearly I was wrong! ðŸ˜‰
Loved it for breakfast! Cake looks great!
Love the coconut sprinkle on top! Nice job!

Wow! I love this. Carrot Cake is one of my not-so-secret indulgences.

I love the idea of the frosting sandwiched between two oatmeal cookies. I have some frosting left over, now I just have to go and make some oatmeal cookies!!
Laura (Tutti Dolci) says
Cinnamon cream cheese frosting sounds like a dream!

Its my favorite cake and recently I have taken to making one in a bundt or loaf for brunches. But this frosting sounds amazing and will take things to a new level. Can’t wait to try it.

Oh, Susan, this looks delicious. But, the frosting piled between two homemade oatmeal cookies sends me over the moon. I would like that right now…….
