Moonwalk Rentals Atlanta: Carrot Cake for Easter

 In Uncategorized

Moonwalk Rentals Atlanta: Carrot cake is one of my very favorite desserts to make for Easter. It fits so well with the whole bunny theme and it feels springy and light to me. My personal favorite thing about carrot cake is the cream cheese frosting. My grandmother always made it for me in a sheet pan – hold the raisins and nuts, please – and would frost it with a double layer of cream cheese frosting because she knew it was my favorite. It was simply to die for. These days I love to add a flavor to the frosting and bake it in layers, but the essence of it is still the same. Whether it is traditional, innovative, or anywhere in the middle, serving carrot cakes is a great spring traditional for Easter and beyond!

Carrot Cake in a Jar

This fun way to bake carrot cake is always a hit with kids. The recipe is the same old cake that you love, only this time it is baked in a glass jar to make perfect individual portions!

Do you need a last-minute dessert? Or just craving something sweet and want instant gratification? Do you like Carrot Cake? Well this is for YOU. You know we’re coo coo for baking in jars around the Family Kitchen lately. And rightly so, it’s an adorable presentation and it’s just plain fun. So I thought I’d take it a step further and try baking in a jar in the MICROWAVE! That’s right in the microwave.

My microwave is pretty much just used to reheat food or melt/soften butter but now you bet it will be used far more often ; ). It literally took ONE MINUTE that’s right, one minute. It takes longer to mix up the batter than it does to cook it.

I used a boxed carrot cake mix and jazzed it up by adding in some grated carrot for texture {you can omit if you’d like}. I also used my Grandma’s from scratch cream cheese frosting and then drizzled caramel sauce on top. It was a dreamy decadent dessert.

NOTE: again, all of MY dessert in jars recipes have not been tested for long term storage. They are meant to be enjoyed immediately.

What you’ll need:
1 box of carrot cake cake mix {+ ingredients to make}
cream cheese frosting
caramel sauce

What to do:
1.  Mix cake batter according to package directions.

2. Spray a 4 ounce mason {canning} jar with cooking spray. Fill jar not quite half way with batter {do not overfill}. Place in microwave and cook on high for 30 seconds. At end of 30 seconds, cook for additional 30 seconds. CAREFULLY remove from microwave and allow to cool.

3. Frost with cream cheese frosting and drizzle caramel sauce on top.
