Carrot cake and cream cheese icing just got a divorce in my house.
To break in my new KitchenAid Classic Stand Mixer, I decided to make a carrot cake. I came across a lighter recipe that didn’t include the usual cream cheese icing in the Southern Living Desserts Cookbook from 1967.
The cake is delicious without the icing, but I had some Trader Joe’s Sea Salt (Fleur de Sel) Caramel Sauce in the fridge, so I warmed it up and drizzled it on the cake. Let me assure you: the combination is spectacular.
