1/2 cup vegetable oil.

1 1/2 tsp all-purpose flour.

INSTRUCTIONS :

I preheated the oven to 350 degrees F and prepared a springform pan.

I whisked sugar and flour in a large bowl, until well combined.

Using an electric mixer I blended cream cheese and sugar mixture until smooth, I added eggs, vanilla extract, and sour cream, and I blended for 2 more minutes. (set aside ).

In a large mixing bowl, I whisked together (for 1 min) white flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon powder, and a pinch of salt.

in another bowl I add oil, applesauce, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract, I blended with a hand mixer, and slowly added dry ingredients, carrots and I mixed very well.

In a greased springform pan, I poured four layers starting by carrot cake mixture then cream cheese mixture, and cake carrots and finally another layer of cream cheese mixture, and baked for 1 hour.

I whipped cream cheese and butter using an electric hand mixer until smooth, I added the remaining topping ingredients and mix again about 5 minutes.

I spread the mixture over the cheesecake and chilled it in the fridge for 1 hour.


  • 2 (8-ounce) packages reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 larges eggs
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 1 ½ teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups packed shredded or matchstick-cut carrots (see Tip)
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar plus 1/2 cup, divided
  • 1 ¼ cups white whole-wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 larges eggs
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped toasted pecans

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray.

To prepare cheesecake batter: Combine cream cheese, ½ cup granulated sugar, sour cream, eggs, orange zest, 1 ½ teaspoons flour and vanilla in a medium bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until completely smooth, 1 to 2 minutes, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. Set aside.

To prepare carrot cake batter: Toss carrots and 2 tablespoons brown sugar together in a medium bowl. Transfer to a fine-mesh strainer place over the bowl and drain for 10 minutes discard excess liquid.

Meanwhile, whisk flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, salt and ginger together in a medium bowl. Whisk applesauce, granulated sugar, eggs, orange zest, vanilla and the remaining ½ cup brown sugar together in a separate bowl. Add the applesauce mixture to the flour mixture and whisk until blended. Stir in the drained carrots.

Pour 1 ½ cups of the carrot cake batter into the prepared pan, smoothing to make an even layer. Dollop on one-third of the cheesecake batter (do not swirl). Pour the remaining carrot cake batter over the dollops, smoothing gently to create an even layer. Pour the remaining cheesecake batter over the the top to completely cover the carrot cake batter, spreading gently with an offset spatula, if needed.

Place the cake pan on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until almost set (center will jiggle slightly), 55 to 65 minutes, tenting with foil after 45 minutes if needed to prevent overbrowning. Cool completely on a wire rack, about 1 ½ hours. Cover loosely with foil and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight. Sprinkle the outside edges of the cheesecake with pecans before serving.

Tip: To make prep easier, look for bagged shredded or matchstick-cut carrots at your grocery store.

Recipe Summary

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely grated
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 3 (8-oz.) pckg. cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely grated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, sugar, eggs, and ginger until well combined. Add to the dry ingredients and mix with a spoon until completely homogenous. Fold in shredded carrot and pecans. Pour mixture into a greased 9-inch springform cake pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 23 to 25 minutes. If the cake has domed in the middle, press the cake down to create a perfectly even surface. Set aside to cool.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Beat together cream cheese, sour cream, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until smooth and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Use a spatula to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl. Add eggs one at a time, waiting until each egg is fully incorporated before adding another. Scrape the bowl again, add the remaining ingredients, and beat for an additional 2 minutes.

Pour Cheesecake mixture over Carrot Cake and spread evenly throughout the pan. Wrap the bottom and sides of the springform pan in several layers of aluminum foil. Place the cake pan in a large roasting pan and fill the roasting pan with water so that it comes a little over halfway up the side of the cake pan. Bake for 1 hour. Turn off the oven and allow the cheesecake to stay in the oven for an additional 30 minutes. Remove cheesecake from oven, remove pan from water bath, and gently run a knife around the edge of the cheesecake. Refrigerate cheesecake for 8 hours or overnight before removing from springform pan.


Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 180 C, 350 F.

Using a piece of foil and parchment paper bigger than the tin, clip both together onto the bottom of a 6.5 inch spring form pan.

(Make sure the pan is at least 3.5 - 4 inches deep)

The parchment should be the layer showing in the bottom of the pan just like the photo. Do not trim off excess foil and paper but just bring it up the outer side of the tin.

Grease paper and up the sides of the tin. See here how to make a water bath and prepare the baking pan.

Instructions For The Cheesecake

2. Beat cream cheese and sugar in a mixer until smooth, scraping down the sides a few times.

Add eggs one at a time, then lemon juice and sour cream.

Set aside mixture in a bowl.

Instructions For The Carrot Cake

3. In a separate bowl, sift flour, soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove powder and set aside.

4. With a clean mixing bowl, beat eggs until frothy. Gradually add sugar and beat until thick and pale.

Add oil slowly, then vanilla and maple syrup.

Add the flour mixture in batches and beat until incorporated. With a spatula, fold in the carrot, coconut and raisins.

5. Put 1/2 of cake batter in the prepared pan.

Next dollop about 1/3 cup of cheesecake batter on top of the cake batter.

Put the rest of the cake batter over this mixture and pour the rest of cheesecake mixture over.

DO NOT SWIRL - The batter will 'swirl' by itself during cooking!

6. Place the cake in the oven on a medium shelf.

Pour hot water in to the pan until it comes up just BELOW the foil.

Bake for around 60 minutes, until the center is slightly wobbly.

Allow to cool and refrigerate until its cold enough to frost.

Instructions For The Frosting

7. Beat cream cheese for a minute, then add butter.Beat till incorporated.

Add sugar and vanilla until fluffy.

DO NOT over beat or you will get a runny mixture and have to start over.

To assemble The Cake

8. Remove cooled cheesecake cake from the baking pan and parchment paper. Put onto a plate or cake board.

9. Frost the whole cake with frosting. Decorate pecan nuts all around.

Drizzle caramel sauce on top and crush up a few pecans and put over caramel sauce.

Carrot Cake Cheesecake

This Carrot Cake Cheesecake is totally delicious and addicting. The carrot cake base is made from my favorite Carrot Cake Recipe, and it’s seriously amazing. It’s made with both pureed carrots and shredded carrots for the ultimate in flavor and moisture.

The cheesecake top is my classic vanilla cheesecake. It’s thick, creamy and wonderful. The whole thing is topped with whipped cream made to look like carrots. So darn fun! The whole thing is like eating a cheesecake with a little carrot cake with it. Does it get any better?


An Easy Easter Carrot Cake Recipe

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.
