Healthy Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
Springtime means especially one thing in our household.. carrot cake!
Are you looking for a moist, delicious, and healthier alternative for carrot cake?
Give ours a try and make sure you whip up a batch of the cream cheese frosting.
I love making this recipe as a double layer with frosting in between and on top.
Such a showstopper when bringing this out to the family.
Top with chopped walnuts or shredded carrots for a bit of fun!
