While carrot cake is a dessert most people tend to enjoy around the Easter holiday, our carrot cake recipe is so irresistible, you'll want to add it to your year-round rotation. Unlike some cakes that boast just one sweet flavor profile accentuated by frosting, this recipe for carrot cake has unmatched depth of flavor thanks to the sweetness of carrots combined with the warmth of cinnamon and nutmeg. The addition of crushed pineapple brightens up and lends extra moisture to the cake while balancing the crunchy bits of chopped pecans throughout. Topped with a lavish vanilla cream cheese frosting, this carrot cake really can't be beat!
