Carrot Bundt Cake with Cheese Frosting and Caramel Sauce

  • 1 & 1/2 h
  • Serves 12
  • Medium

Directions

What does a cooking maniac like me when there are 500 gr. of carrot lying around? A Carrot Cake, of course! Not a salad, not something super healthy, but a cake. Yes, I cheated a lot this week. I still kept my weekly diet but I ate a lot of frozen Greek yogurt and, of course, 2 pieces of this perfect, little, Bundt miracle. But, come on, you can understand me, right? Moist carrot cake with crunchy sweet peanuts, cheese frosting and sticky caramel sauce. Impossible to resist.

But now let me tell you a little story about how the idea of this Bundt Cake popped into my head. I have a pretty silicone shape for it, that I didn’t use in ages and I kept thinking for a while what should I make again in it. So, just like I said, I had a lot of grated carrot in the fridge, because I was getting ready to make Loempia when my fiance decided that we should go out instead of cooking, so I was left with a lot of it. And the next day, of course, I didn’t feel like making egg rolls anymore. And I also stumbled upon some amazing sugar glazed peanuts that we both love and on top of that, in one of the cooking group that I recently joined someone posted a challenge with the title “caramel”. So, now you understand how this cake became so complex. Even if it sounds like a lot of work, it’s not that much. Actually, it’s only nice and fun work with it! So why not make it right now?

Done

Now... I wanted mine to have 2 colours so I spooned the cheese after I added 3/4 of batter and topped the cheese with 1/4 batter. If you want trap it in be careful not to touch the sides of the shape with the cream cheese and divide the batter in half.
