Best Carrot Cake. Ever.

in Cakes, Desserts

I can be a total brat sometimes. Like attitude city, population: ME. I’ve mentioned this before. So when I see recipes that have the name: “Jessica’s Best Blank” or “Best Blank You’ve Ever Eaten,” I get way bratty. I kinda think those recipes are super self-righteous.

Wait, you’re telling me it’s ridiculous that I think recipes CAN even be self-righteous?!? Listen, I said I was a brat, I never said I was logical!!

I digress…so when I stumbled upon this recipe, I was way skeptical. Bratty skeptical.

(You know what I’m about to say next, right?! Of course you do!)

I was incredibly surprised. Blown away, actually.

So take your cute little self over to PW’s Tasty Kitchen Blog where I wrote a guest post. There’s some step-by-step photos–a lot of which include my glitter nails!–the low down on the recipe and the recipe itself.

You’re not a brat,I agree completely! This recipe is almost identical to the one I’ve used for several years. It is from Bon Appetit, and who would’ve thought a simple buttermilk syrup put this cake over the top – but it is out of this world! Sometimes I substitute mascarpone cheese for the cream cheese in the frosting which is fabulous too!

The brat in me is saying this can’t be as good as my carrot cake, but then I love carrot cake so much that I can’t really take the chance, I’m clicking over to Tasty Kitchen right now!

Bratty is a good thing. Did someone say carrot cake? If I could I’ll be there tomorrow.

Those kinds of recipes (The Best Ever, etc.) always make me think of that scene in Elf when he goes into that coffee shop and congratulates them on having the world’s best coffee. That scene cracks me up every time.

Carrot cake, to me, is the only cake really worth eating. And when it is amazing, sing it’s praises!! This one just might ruin all other carrot cake experiences to come. xo

Hi!! I made this on the weekend… but I did it all in one tin so the middle was still not cooked.. but the outside was great. Do you think it would work in muffin/cupcake form? Libby
