Carrot and Coconut Cake

Updated January 11, 2024

When chocolate and vanilla won’t do, a delightfully spiced carrot cake with cream cheese frosting is the perfect solution! Betty Maker Ericka Sanchez takes Betty’s Carrot Cake Quick Bread and transforms it into a special occasion-worthy sheet cake.

Made with Betty Crocker™ Super Moist Yellow Cake Mix, this recipe creates a soft, flavorful carrot cake that’s simple to make and perfect for feeding a crowd. The addition of cinnamon and nutmeg gives it that iconic carrot cake flavor!

Once the cake is baked, Ericka drizzles it with a vanilla glaze, then tops it with luscious Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting. The impressive finishing touch: a generous sprinkle of toasted coconut. The combination of flavors is out of this world.

This dessert is sure to be a hit at any gathering or celebration during the winter months and into the spring—it’s a fun cake to make for Easter, too! Give it a try yourself, and be sure to check out all the other fun recipe twists created by the rest of the Betty Makers this month.
