A lot of people in my family love carrot cake, and I love cheesecake, so when I found this recipe for the two combined, I knew it would be perfect to make for Easter. I’m not a huge carrot cake fan, and the boxed mix was a little too gingery for me so next time I will try and make it from scratch.
I got this recipe from: http://www.sweettreatsmore.com
1 box Betty Crocker carrot cake mix
1 stick of butter, softened
2 8oz. blocks of cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl, beat cake mix, butter, and 1 egg with an electric mixer until combined. Mixture will not look like normal cake mix, it will look like dough.
Press dough into the bottom of a 9×13 inch pan.
Next, mix softened cream cheese, two eggs, sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer and pour over the top of your carrot cake dough.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean!
Let cool and then cut into squares to serve.
