February 3rd is the “National Carrot Cake Day”. And for me it is a great day to give special treat to my younger son…Easy, light and incredibly moist carrot cake recipe with an ultra-creamy Mascarpone cheese (or just use cream cheese) frosting. A must make and you’ll make it a permanent addition to your collection!! My younger son loves carrot cake and so I sometimes prepare in microwave as well(No condensed milk required) but I have very quick and easy eggless basic cake batter recipe to follow in which I use condensed milk as usual but see the recipe below if you prefer without condensed milk.
Any cake is incomplete without frosting and specially for carrot cake cream cheese based frosting is popular but I personally love to prepare with mascarpone cheese, so much better tasting than cream cheese! Try it out and you will love it for sure as well.
Can’t find Mascarpone cheese, well I have solution for that, too! Just make at home…
If you wish to make this same recipe without condensed milk, add 3/4-1 cup Mix of Brown and white sugar and slightly increase any of the liquid used in the recipe. Or else just use the recipe of my mug carrot cake and increase the quantity of ingredients.
