Carrot cake is one of my favorite desserts! But I so rarely make it. After making this moist and flavorful cake and realizing how easy it is, (with just a bit of organization ahead of time), I will likely make it more often! Adapted from and inspired by the Ultimate Carrot Cake Recipe from Southern Living, this cake can be further enhanced by the addition of this Buttermilk Glaze. I did not do this, but I’m thinking this buttermilk glaze would be awesome with any cake at all!
To make it a 2-layer cake, just pour the batter into 2 9” cake pans, and bake for 28-32 minutes, instead of 22-26 minutes, and spread the frosting over the sides as well as between the layers and on top!
