These are the 9 best ever carrot cake recipes in the world. Carrot cake is so good because the carrots make it moist and cream cheese frosting is just the best. I LOVE carrot cake! I think the reason I like it so much is because in my opinion the cream cheese frosting is to die for.
Recipe #1 on this list is my all time favorite. I got this recipe from my Mom, she got this recipe from her Sister in law who got it from her sister in law. So you can see, it is a long time family favorite recipe.
I like recipe #1 because it does not have raisins or pineapple or nuts inside of the cake. It does call for chopped walnuts on top which is great. I just don’t like all that other stuff inside my carrot cake.
But for all those of you who do like other stuff in your carrot cake I have included some Carrot Cake Recipes with pineapple, coconut or raisins.

1. The Best Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting – Inspiring Cooks
This is my families all time favorite carrot cake recipe. I believe it was handed down to my Mom from my aunt. We’ve been making it in our family for many years. Several years ago my mom altered it and replaced half of the oil with applesauce. She also put less sugar in it and now I love it even more because it’s more healthy. I really do think it tastes better without all the oil and less sugar. Make sure you use unsweetened applesauce. If you use sweetened applesauce you’ll want to use even less sugar. I love that it doesn’t have any pineapple or raisins added to it. I think they ruin carrot cake. Sorry, I know some people like them in carrot cake but I don’t. Of course, the cream cheese frosting is my favorite part. I think it makes the cake.
