The BEST carrot cake recipe I have ever found! A buttermilk glaze seeps into the cake layers and a cream cheese frosting brings all the flavors together.
I made a birthday cake last week.
It was for a friend of mine who I wanted to do something special for. Something fabulous and from-the-heart. So I did something I’ve never done before.
I made a cake.
With three layers. And homemade frosting that I spread between each layer and then all over the top and the sides.
For a NON-baker, this was impressive.
It was also the BEST Carrot Cake recipe I have ever found.
I am so proud. I may tear up a little, please excuse me.
This particular Carrot Cake also has a lick-the-spoon-and-bowl-clean buttermilk glaze that seeps down into the cake while it’s still warm from the oven, making it incredibly moist. And the cream cheese frosting brings it all together.
Did I mention that I’m not even a huge fan of carrot cake??

I desperately wish that this recipe for the BEST Carrot Cake of all time was actually mine. But I am not the one who created this perfect gem. Nope…I got this recipe from MyRecipes.com.
Which made me a little afraid because a few reviewers balked at the buttermilk glaze and called it “worthless” or something equally not true. Follow the directions and it will be soooo delicious. And if you don’t think so then just bring it over to my house – I’ll be happy to take it off your hands :)
I can’t, in good conscience, post the Carrot Cake recipe here. I wish that I could but I didn’t even change one little smidge of a thing. It is simply perfect as it is and I can’t imagine how I could ever improve upon it.
But I had to tell you about it and I hope you’ll forgive me that you’re just going to have to click on over to MyRecipes.com to check it out. I’m not getting paid and I have no agenda here other than needing to share my great find.
I know you’re going to enjoy it as much as I did! And if you have a Best Carrot Cake Recipe that you think rivals this one, feel free to link to it (or share the recipe) in the comments section. The more Carrot Cake the merrier!
