To make a carrot cake, whisk together all of the batter ingredients until smooth. Then combine the cream cheese and the other cheesecake ingredients in a mixing bowl.

Ingredients for Carrot Cheesecake

For Cheesecake Mix:

  • 2 (8 oz) pkgs. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt

FOR THE CARROT CAKE

  • Cooking spray, for pan
  • 1 1/2 c all-purpose flour 
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt 
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 2  large Eggs, beaten at room temperature
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cup grated carrots (from 1 large)
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Topping

  • 2 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup (+ 2 tbsp.) sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Purpose of ingredients-

Flour – Flour is required for the cheesecake’s carrot cake component. It keeps the carrots and other components together. All-purpose flour should suffice.

To keep the cake moist, oil is utilized instead of butter.

Sugar not only adds sweetness to the cake, but it also gives it the proper crumb structure.

Carrots — Peeling the carrots prevents them from turning bitter, which is particularly important if you’re using older carrots.

Full-fat cream cheese is best for a wonderfully creamy Carrot Cake Cheesecake.

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-inch springform pan and set aside.
  • Shred carrots by hand or in a food processor, then set aside in a small bowl.
  • For the cheesecake mixture: In a mixing bowl, whisk together sugar and 1 1/2 tsp flour until well combined. Add cream cheese and using an electric hand mixer set on low speed, blend together cream cheese and granulated sugar mixture until smooth.
  • Mix in eggs one at a time, mixing just until combined after each addition and adding in vanilla with second egg. Blend in sour cream. Forcefully tap bowl against countertop about 30 times to release air bubbles. Set mixture aside. Rinse beaters clean.
  • Make the carrot cake: In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg for 30 seconds.
  • To a separate large mixing bowl, add canola oil, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract and blend mixture using electric hand mixer set on low speed for 1 minute.
  • With mixer running on low speed, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix until well blended. Add carrots and mix until evenly distributed. Tap bowl forcefully against counter, about 3 times, just to release large air pockets.
  • To assemble cheesecake: Pour 1 1/2 cups carrot cake mixture into buttered springform pan and spread into an even layer. Dollop about 1/3 of the cream cheese mixture by the spoonful over carrot cake layer (don’t spread or swirl).
  • Spoon remaining carrot cake mixture over cream cheese layer, then finish by drizzling by the remaining cheesecake mixture over carrot cake layer, working to cover all of the carrot cake mixture (I found this easiest to do this was by slowly drizzling over with the spoon).
  • Bake in preheated oven 60 – 65 minutes, until center portion only jiggles slightly and tenting with aluminum foil at 40 minutes to prevent excessive browning. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack 1 hour, then cover with foil and chill in refrigerator 5 hours or overnight.
  • For the topping: In a mixing bowl, using an electric hand mixer, whip together cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add remaining topping ingredients and mix until pale and fluffy, about 4 – 5 minutes.
  • Spread evenly over cheesecake then chill cheesecake in freezer for 20 – 30 minutes. Sprinkle edges with chopped pecans. Cut into slices.

Now, enjoy your delicious creation!

— This Carrot Cake Cheesecake must be cooked, but a raw carrot foundation may be used for a no-bake, vegan alternative. 1 cup coconut, 1 cup cashews, 1 tsp orange zest, 8 Medjool dates, 1 cup shredded carrots, and 1/3 cup coconut flour are blended together. For the cheesecake filling, use whatever recipe you want, just be sure to use vegan cream cheese.
