Bunny Carrot Cakes

Bunny Carrot Cakes #SpringSweetsWeek

Bunny Carrot Cakes are perfect little single serving cakes for Easter. The bunny shape is adorable and lends itself to creative decorating. I opted for minimal frosting to focus on the carrot cake and the bunny shape.

For this recipe, I used the peeler and utensil set provided by Deiss Kitchenware. I really liked the Deiss peeler as it easily peeled the outside layer of the carrot as well as has two options for the shredding of the carrot. It is very easy to use and clean. The utensil set is strong and doesn’t bend while stirring the stiff carrot cake batter and is also very easy to clean. I would recommend both products.

Ingredients

  • 1 2/3 cups all purpose flour

Cake

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cups finely shredded carrots
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Frosting:

  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare your pan by using a baking spray containing flour.

Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl, and toss with shredded carrots to combine and coat. Combine oil, butter, yogurt, eggs and vanilla in bowl; beat until combined. Add wet mixture to flour mixture and mix to combine. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally to make sure all mix is incorporated. Spoon the batter into the cakelet pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan 5-10 minutes and then remove the cakes and cool completely on cooling racks.

Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add sugar gradually, beating after each addition until blended. Use a knife of piping bag to decorate the bunny cakelets.

  10. Too cute! That looks like a nice sturdy peeler, I’ve got through quite a few flimsy ones. Time for an upgrade!

  11. So much to love about this! the cute bunny pan, the carrot cake, the awesome peeler from Deiss (seriously, one utensil instead of peeler plus the grater) did I mention the carrot cake already?
