3 Variations on Carrot Cake

  1. Classic Carrot Cake with Fluffy Cream Cheese Frosting
  2. Carrot cake, that 1970s favorite, has a new audience at luxe restaurants like Manhattan’s Le Bernardin.

  3. Carrot Cake with Lemon Mascarpone Frosting
  4. Inspired by his time apprenticing in Italy, chef Scott Howell uses mascarpone in this light and lemony frosting instead of cream cheese—carrot cake’s more classic partner.

  5. Almond and Carrot Cake
  6. Because it’s not overly sweet or rich, this dessert—a cross between a coarse-textured flourless nut cake and a carrot cake—would be perfect with a glass of sweet wine.
