  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Frosting:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine melted butter, cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, vanilla extract and carrot juice and start blending it using the electric hand mixer until it is creamy.

Tips:

  • Keep the stick butter and cream cheese in a room temperature for about 1 to 2 hours.
  • Adding juice of carrot gives you very nice natural color.
  • Organic foods are very good for health, so I used organic carrots, organic butter, milk, cheese, organic eggs, organic vanilla extract, organic unbleached all-purpose-flour, organic pecans, organic sugar and sea salt.
  • Health carrot cake for everyone; try them and enjoy :-) .
