America's Test Kitchen Carrot Cake

Simple Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting From Easy Sheet Cakes Why This Recipe Works When developing our carrot cake recipe, we wanted to avoid dense, soggy cake while streamlining the procedure. For a moist, rich cake with a tight and tender crumb, we tinkered with the amounts of all-purpose flour, carrots, and oil to get just the right balance. Conservative quantities of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves gave our carrot cake recipe pleasant, but not overwhelming, spice. And we added some sour cream to our cream cheese frosting recipe for shine as well as flavor. Read More Ingredients 1 1/2 pounds fresh sweet cherries, pitted and halved 1 teaspoon lemon juice 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour, plus 1/2 cup (2 1/2 ounces) 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon 4 large eggs 2/3 cup (4 2/3 ounces) plus 2 teaspoons sugar 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup heavy cream 2/3 cup whole milk 1 tablespoon unsalted butter Instructions Makes one 13 by 9-inch cake We prefer whole milk in this recipe, but 1 or 2 percent low-fat milk may be substituted. Do not substitute frozen cherries for the fresh cherries. 1. Adjust oven racks to lowest and upper-middle positions; place 12-inch skillet on lower rack and heat oven to 425 degrees. Line rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and place cherries, cut side up, on sheet. Roast cherries on upper rack until just tender and cut sides look dry, about 15 minutes. Transfer cherries to medium bowl, toss with lemon juice, and let cool for 5 minutes. Combine 2 teaspoons flour and cinnamon in small bowl; dust flour mixture evenly over cherries and toss to coat thoroughly. 2. Meanwhile, whisk eggs, 2/3 cup sugar, vanilla, and salt in large bowl until smooth and pale, about 1 minute. Whisk in remaining 1/2 cup flour until smooth. Whisk in cream and milk until incorporated. 3. Remove skillet (skillet handle will be hot) from oven and set on wire rack. Add butter and swirl to coat bottom and sides of skillet (butter will melt and brown quickly). Pour batter into skillet and arrange cherries evenly on top (some will sink). Transfer skillet to lower rack and bake until clafouti puffs and turns golden brown (edges will be dark brown) and center registers 195 degrees, 18 to 22 minutes, rotating skillet halfway through baking. Transfer skillet to wire rack and let cool for 25 minutes. Sprinkle clafouti evenly with remaining 2 teaspoons sugar. Slice into wedges and serve. 4. Adjust oven racks to lowest and upper-middle positions; place 12-inch skillet on lower rack and heat oven to 425 degrees.

America's Test Kitchen Carrot Cake

Carrot Layer Cake From Great American Classics Why This Recipe Works Preparing this cake in a half sheet pan means that it bakes and cools in far less time than a conventional layer cake, and—cut into quarters—it produces four thin, level layers that do not require splitting or trimming before frosting. Adding extra baking soda raises the pH of the batter, ensuring that the coarsely shredded carrots will soften during the shortened baking time. Buttermilk powder in the frosting reinforces the tangy flavor of the cream cheese without making the frosting too soft.
