Cream cheese frosting (just typing that out gets my taste buds tingling) makes even the humblest of cakes delectable. I mean, really who thought "Yes, carrots would make a delicious cake base!" Probably someone with a very wonderful recipe for cream cheese frosting. Carrot cake ranks up among my all time favorites, and most likely because of it's stellar ability to take a back seat to the frosting of the gods.
I have to credit the lovely Ree Drummond, Pioneer Woman, for this recipe which has become my go-to recipe for carrot cake. Why? Oh that is easy, because it is EASY. And fabulous, but mostly because of the easy.
