Moist Carrot Banana Cake Smothered in Butter Cream Cheese Frosting is a Perfect and Simple Dessert, snack or Breakfast!

Our moist and delicious Carrot Banana Cake was inspired by our Banana Bread Cake! It’s the perfect combination of Ripe Sweet Bananas with Shredded Carrots than Smothered with our Creamy Butter Cream Cheese Frosting with NO POWDERED Sugar! Because the Bananas and Carrots are sweet enough, this Cake only has 1/2 Cup of Cane Sugar for a Sheet Cake Pan and 1 Cup of Cane Sugar in our Creamy Delicious Frosting, that’s a total of 1 1/2 Cups for a whole Sheet of Cake!

TIP:

We only used 2 8 Ounce Packages of Cream Cheese instead of the 3 8 Ounce Packages that is in our Original Creamy Butter Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe because we were not layering the cake, it is a Sheet Cake!

Carrot Banana Cake Instructions:

1. You will need 2 bowls, one for dry ingredients and one for wet. Add Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Salt, Cinnamon and Nutmeg in a bowl and mix them up, Set aside!

2. Before Mixing wet ingredients together, shred 1 Cup of carrots with a grater!
Now mash 4 ripe Bananas in a small bowl (we leave the bananas a little chunky)!
Here is me shredding carrots!

Butter Cream Cheese Frosting Instructions:

1. Using a mixer, cream the room temperature Butter and Cane Sugar together.
Make sure butter and sugar are well blended, it takes about 5 – 10 Minutes!

(Cane Sugar doesn’t cream up with butter that well, we are just trying to get it blended really well, there will still be sugar crystals until next step!)

2. Now add 2 8 ounce packages of room temperature Cream Cheese.
Start mixing and scraping sides of bowl for about 5 Minutes, or until the frosting is smooth with NO sugar crystals!

10 thoughts on “Carrot Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting”

  1. Great recipe! I use 1-2/3 cups gluten free flour blend and the cake part turned out wonderful. The frosting was really good, too. Not overly sweet at all. This is a definite keeper!

  2. i love how cute these cupcakes are! Almost too pretty to eat. Almost 😉 love the idea of having a mixologist over for the night. That sounds like it’d be such a fun night!!

  3. Do you think I could swap out the carrot and replace with zucchini? I have a surplus of yellow zucchini at the moment.
    Thank you
