Frequently Asked Questions

What goes well with carrot cake?

Warm beverages will complement the carrot cake well. We recommend serving a warm cup of coffee or tea. Make sure it’s unsweetened. The sweetness of the carrot cake will provide the lighter flavor in contrast to the bitterness of the coffee.

Can I make my carrot cake ahead?

Yes, just make sure to keep your cake in an airtight container and keep it refrigerated. Because of the cream cheese, this cake is prone to spoilage faster. If you’re going to serve it, just expose it at room temperature for a couple of minutes. The carrot cake with cream cheese can last for a couple of days when kept in the refrigerator.

What is a good substitute for buttermilk?

When substituting buttermilk, you can either use plain yogurt as suggested or go for Greek yogurt which will give you a creamier, richer texture. Alternatively, you can make your own buttermilk by adding a tablespoon of white vinegar to a cup of full cream milk. Allow the mixture to stand for five minutes before adding it to your recipe..
