We are using the regular ingredients for a carrot cake but we will also be adding extra ingredients for more flavor. vegetable oil, white and brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract, needed for our cake base. We could use all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour. Spices for that special taste, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves are the ones we will be using today. Also baking soda and powder, salt, and our grated carrots. The frosting of cream cheese is easily made with some cream cheese, butter, salt vanilla, and sugar. Less sugar will give a firmer frosting.
If you like your cake crunchy you could add some extra nuts, and or raisins.
To begin with our carrot cake bars we are going to heat our oven at 350º Fahrenheit and prep a baking dish preferably of 9×9 inches with some cooking spray.
Then we are going to gather our wet ingredients and mix them together. Mix well and then add the eggs, and vanilla, keep mixing until we get a smooth and nice mix.
After that mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, that will consist of the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cloves.
Once we have our two mixes of dry and wet ingredients we want to mix them together. Adding the dry with the wet ingredients, until we get a blended mixture. Add the grated carrots and mix. In case of wanting to add extra ingredients like nuts and or raisins, you can add them now as well.
Pour your batter into the baking platter and spread it until it’s evenly. Put it into your heated oven and let it bake for 40 minutes. Your cake should start looking nice and golden or you can simply stick a toothpick in it if it comes out clean. Your cake is ready.
Take your cake out of the oven and let it cool. Start working in your frosting.
Mix your cream cheese, butter, and vanilla until it’s nice and smooth. Add the remaining sugar and mix it until you get the consistency you want.
Spread your frosting and slice your cake. Enjoy it at room temperature with a nice cup of tea or coffee.
