The carrot cake is a classic. Nothing can beat a carrot cake on a lovely afternoon or a holiday. Since it's already delicious as it is, what are other ways to make it even more delicious? My answer to that is to add cheesecake to it.
If you love the mix of cake and cheesecake in a cupcake, this is what you need! Start with carrot cake as the base. Unlike most carrot cakes where you use grated carrot, this recipe uses pureed carrot. Using this instead of the grated carrot gives the cupcakes a very smooth texture. Also, a cheesecake filling is layered into the cupcake batter. I can say this is the best definition of the best of both worlds! Of course, the classic cream cheese frosting completes this dessert! Finally, top these cupcakes with a carrot or cute sugar carrot decorations you can find.
If you aren't a big fan of carrot, you can totally make pumpkin cheesecake swirl cupcakes instead! Use your favorite pumpkin cupcake recipe, and you're good for the holidays!
