Is it safe to say the F word yet? Fall? I have to admit I’m saying it without hesitation around here because quite frankly it feels like fall. It was summer, then literally overnight it turned to fall. Like the kind of fall that requires the furnace to be turned on, and the jeans to come out. I’ve even worn my UGGS out…it’s that chilly here. But I don’t mind…we had such a nice summer…hot, fun and full of adventure. And after a busy summer, I was more than ready for fall and everything that comes along with it, like routine, cozy fall dinners and everything pumpkin. Yes, I’ve busted out the pumpkin and I won’t apologize. I can’t. Pumpkin flavoured everything is fantastic.
So when I was deciding on a dessert to take to a family dinner last weekend, I didn’t hesitate to make something pumpkin themed. I had already made a Pumpkin Bundt Cake earlier in the week (recipe coming soon), so I wanted to make something different…enter this Carrot Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Cream Cheese Drizzle.
And when I say drizzle maybe we could call it splatter? Because I really did just splatter the icing all over the cake. All over. Messy, willy nilly and without apology. Without abandon.
And I love how it looks. It has a fancy yet rustic look, which is good news for those of us who can’t ice a cake like an expert. As I’ve admitted before, I cannot ice a cake for the life of me, so when I have a chance to splat icing on a cake I’ll take it.
Anyway, enough about the icing, the cake really is the star of this show. This is a moist, spicy and super delicious carrot cake. The addition of the pumpkin adds a gorgeous silky texture, and the spices bring up memories of fall. With the carrot and coconut, this cake is SO good. Perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner…any time of the year.Print
If you love carrot or pumpkin, I really hope you try this recipe. You’ll want a second piece, trust me. Even the kids had seconds which amazed me…kids are funny with carrot cake sometimes, but this was very well received!
Enjoy and have a delicious day!
