Carrot Cake with Chocolate Frosting? Yes!

Carrot Cake Chocolate FrostingI didn’t have any cream cheese. But I wanted carrot cake. My husband said, “How about your chocolate frosting?” (He loves chocolate!) Once I stopped laughing, I decided to make my whole wheat carrot cake with chocolate frosting, knowing once he had a taste, he would agree to never make a baking suggestion again. Well after I ate some of the cake, I had to eat crow. It was delicious!

Homemade carrot cake is a real treat and worth the effort of shredding a big carrot. I’ve simplified my recipe so it works with or without crushed pineapple and this time I didn’t have pineapple either and this cake is really delicious without it, especially with chocolate frosting. I used my 2-Minute Chocolate Frosting and frosted only the top of my cake right in the pan.

Mine is a healthier whole wheat carrot cake make without butter so the only butter here is in the frosting. I sometimes double the frosting, split the cake and make it a 2-layer treat. If you want to try something different and delicious, make homemade carrot cake with chocolate frosting, or use the traditional cream cheese topping.  Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

    Good morning Ms. Jenny,

    I hate to be such a pest to you, but I wanted to let you know that I have been trying to send you some of my pictures from your recipes.
    They keep sending them back saying no such email address exists…WHAT!!??
    Even my simple emails to you keep coming back….why?!
    I’m not sure if anyone else is having this problem.
    I thought I’ll let you know and this is the only way I knew how, hopefully you’ll get this.
    Your recipes really are FANTASTIC to work with!
    They have such taste to them, no boring flavors or blandness.
    I just wanted you to know that I do use your recipes and truly enjoy them.
    I go back to YouTube and re-watch your video’s over and over.
    You are such a funny lady and such a character!
    You’re just tops in my book!

    Hope you had a nice weekend Ms. Jenny!

    Best regards,
