It's pretty hard to improve upon classic carrot cake-unless you take that sweet-and-spiced flavor and turn it into mini tortes, sandwich cookies, muffins, oatmeal and even homemade jam. These dreamy desserts, breakfasts and spreads take your love of carrot cake to a whole new level.
This wonderful recipe for carrot cake dates back to my great-grandmother! You'll love the texture this pretty, moist treat gets from pineapple, coconut and, of course, carrots! Its traditional cream cheese frosting adds just the right touch of sweetness. —Debbie Jones, California, Maryland
