Units Scale

Carrot Pumpkin Bundt Cake:

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, or you can use vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 2 cups finely grated carrots
  • 1/2 cups shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup raisins (I use more because we love raisins)

Cheesecake Layer

  • 12 ounces (1.5 packages) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla bean paste

Cream Cheese Drizzle:


Carrot Pumpkin Bundt Cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prep the pan: Prepare a bundt cake mold by greasing and dusting it with flour. This cake is very moist so you need to do this step!
  3. Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, ginger and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
  4. Mix: Using a mixer, combine the pumpkin, brown sugar, buttermilk, oil, eggs and vanilla. Mix well.
  5. Add the dry ingredients slowly to the wet mixture, and gently combine.
  6. Stir in the carrots, coconut, nuts, and raisins.
  7. Pour half the cake batter into the prepared bundt pan

Cheesecake Layer

In a medium bowl using a hand-held or stand mixer equipped with whisk attachment, beat the cream cheese for 1 minute on medium speed until completely smooth and creamy. Add the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Beat on high speed until completely combined.

  1. Spread the cheesecake mixture in an even layer on top of the cake batter. It’s thick so do your best.
  2. Pour the remaining cake batter on top.
  3. Bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. NOTE: Ovens vary and this is a moist cake. Don’t be discouraged if your cake takes longer than 1 hour. It’s done when the toothpick comes out clean.
  4. Cool the cake in the pan for at least 15 minutes before turning it out onto a cooling rack.

Cream Cheese Drizzle

  1. Beat together the cream cheese until it is smooth. Add in the buttermilk and Maple Syrup, and mix until smooth.  Slowly add the powdered sugar, and mix until smooth.
  2. Drizzle the icing all over the cake. You can be creative where you want to icing to be.
