1 - Biscoff Carrot Cake

Top 5 Carrot Cake Recipes

I'm starting off with my favourite carrot cake and perhaps the most striking of all five carrot cakes. This is a beauty flavoured with Biscoff, everyone's favourite biscuit spread. There's richly spiced carrot cake with sultanas and crystallised ginger, a layer of Biscoff spread, a coating of cream cheese and nutty browned butter frosting and an adornment of carrot fronds, gerbera petals and carrot tops!

2 - Chocolate Carrot Cake

So I hear there are people out there that don't love carrot cake. WUTTTT!!?? Yup so this cake is for those people or the undecided. It's half a rich chocolate cake and half a carrot cake so you've just about pleased everyone!

3 - Vegan Carrot Cake

Oh hang on, did I forget the vegans? Well vegan carrot cake is just about the easiest carrot cake there is out there! Plus you won't get a runny buttercream like you get with cashew cream cheese. This recipe has a wonderful tangy buttercream that tastes like cream cheese icing!

4 - Carrot and Blood Orange Cake

Top 5 Carrot Cake Recipes

This is one of my favourite spring time cakes. It's a moist carrot and blood orange cake with coconut, blood orange, spices and cream cheese frosting plus the goodness of carrot to keep this cake wonderfully moist!

5 - Hawaiian Carrot Cake (Gluten Free)

Top 5 Carrot Cake Recipes

Everyone loves Hawaii and dare I say everyone loves this Hawaiian carrot cake with pineapple, macadamias and ginger added to a traditional carrot cake and pineapple flowers on top! There's even the silkiest buttercream where you use much less sugar than a traditional frosting!

So tell me Dear Reader, which carrot cake would be your pick?
