For today's trick, we are going to help everyone make up their minds! For every time that I have made a Carrot Cake and a cheesecake, only to have so many people say they don't know which to choose, or "Maybe I could just have a little slice of both?" This is the answer - plain and simple!
Simple and oh so good! Moist carrot cake spiced up just right...blended with swirls of creamy cheesecake. And topped with the lightest cream cheese glaze...we're talking perfection here folks! And the combination of luscious carrot cake and cream cheese? It's out of this world wonderful!
Now you might think that this is really complicated. And hard to make. And time consuming. Au contraire! This one will be our little secret!
Grating the carrots is probably the most time-consuming part of this recipe - and your food processor will make quick work of that! After that, a simple carrot cake batter, swirled with a creamy cheesecake batter, and into the oven it goes!
A sprinkle of chopped pecans around the top of the luscious cream cheese glaze crowns this beauty. And isn't it wonderful when the flavors and textures are actually the day AFTER you make something? So nice to be able to get a few things out of the way early! And isn't it nice when you only need to make one dessert?
For an Easter brunch or dinner, or other spring event, this is soooo pretty topped with fresh edible flowers!
Today we were surprised with a warm and sunny Easter Sunday...so we'll be enjoying a slice of this out on the deck. Hope that you find time to enjoy the day - and some Carrot Cake Cheesecake - as well!
Blessings to you all!
