Maple Caramel Carrot Cake

Maple Caramel Carrot Cake

Spiced carrot cake layers infused with maple syrup and topped with maple caramel & cream cheese frosting.

I had so many challenges with this cake that at one point I considered the possibility that the universe didn’t want me to make this recipe. Carrot cake is delicious as it is, but something about the combination of the maple and the caramel with the cream cheese frosting is just pure heaven.

There are too many carrot cake recipes out there already (it said), why does the world need another one?! Nevertheless, I’m glad I persevered, because this Maple Caramel Carrot Cake is truly like no other.

If you’re looking for something a little different, a twist on something traditional, then this is the cake for you! The cake layers are incredibly moist and the maple caramel has a delicious and unique flavor. It really is my new favorite cake recipe. I hope you like it as much as I do.
