I am not a Carrot cake person.I will never order it in a bakery. I am a loyal chocolate fan with a complete bias for Chocolate Desserts. I like carrots only in my mom’s gajar ka halwa.
But I have been wanting to do something with pumpkins and carrots for a while. Both for the blog and for those of you who like such desserts. See, I am sweet like that :P.
The carrots are so fresh and juicy in this season. I would be a fool not to use them now. But I am really not a fan of Carrot cake with layers of cream cheese frosting over it. I might bake one for you all if you guys love it so much. Later though :D! Right now, I have settled with this Carrot Coffee Cake. It is perfect for me. I love to eat a slice of coffee cake with my morning coffee.
This cake is not as fancy as the traditional carrot cake with cream cheese frosting but it has all the conventional carrot cake flavours with the warmth of the spices and the additional crispy buttery crumb topping. I love streusels and I admire how they lift up a regular cake.
Also, when I am eating a slice of this Carrot Coffee Cake for my breakfast, I am deemed to think it’s healthy!! Of course, it’s wholesome and healthy! Carrots are involved and there is no frosting as well.
It’s such a simple and hassle free recipe. You should definitely bake this Carrot Coffee Cake for this weekend’s brunch.
You will love the simple flavours of this Carrot Coffee Cake. The crumbly and crunchy walnut streusel is a perfect addition to the moist and tender carrot cake base!!
