Carrot Cake Cheesecake is delicious twist on Easter classic dessert – carrot cake, especially for those cheesecake fans out there.Moist layers of carrot cake swirled with creamy cheesecake, topped with tangy but sweet cream cheese frosting will be perfect ending to Easter dinner.
I was really distracted by some personal problems lately and I was not in the mood to deal with recipes, cooking and baking, so my dear hubby took care of our blog and among other things, he was in charge to come up with an idea for our next post. When he found this Carrot Cake Cheesecake from Cooking Classy he was so amazed. He said:” OMG, this looks amazing. This might the most beautiful dessert I’ve ever seen. You have to try this”. I have to admit that I am not a huge fun of carrot cake like my husband but I simply adore cheesecakes so this recipe looks like a perfect compromise that will satisfy both my and his taste. I decided to give it a chance.
When I checked the list of ingredients I realized that I was missing some of them in my kitchen supplies so I found out the original recipe at Mel’s Kitchen Cafe that was a slightly different but looks absolutely brilliant as the first one.
Directions and the list of ingredients looks quite lengthy, so I thought it would be much more difficult task considering that I just did not in the mood these days, but it’s much easier to put together than it appears, really.
Although my Carrot Cake Cheesecake does not look as beautiful as the original, I must admit that it was really delicious. To tell you the truth, I overdid it with cinnamon and also baked it a little longer than it should so my cake turned out much darker than the one I saw in the picture. That’s what happens when you have too much self-confidence and you think that you don’t have to measure the ingredients correctly and watch out for the timing. But I love cinnamon so it doesn’t bother me, just the cake didn’t turned out as pretty as it should be for presentation. It will be better next time when I get back in shape, I promise.
The recipe is really great, so this carrot cake and cheesecake swirled together into one really yummy dessert will be on our Easter menu this year for sure.
