Petite Buttermilk Carrot Cake

One versatile batter can produce a variety of entertaining options. Petite Buttermilk Carrot Cake is prepared in a 6-inch cake pan & the beauty is that a little goes a long way. If you’ve been hesitant to bake a cake from scratch because it requires a lot of steps or something a bit smaller than the typical layer cake is desired, this recipe is for you. It foregoes the heavy cream cheese frosting loaded with fat & calories to allow the cake to shine & just a smattering of Cream Cheese Glaze is needed to add a simple garnish of pecan halves. Try my design or consider piping the glaze around the outer perimeter of the cake for a ring of them instead. If a hostess gift, spring party favor or Easter table design element is needed, look to Mini Buttermilk Carrot Cake Loaves to fit the bill for packaging ideas that will have it ready to gift. You may double the batter recipe & bake both styles, too, if desired. Learn how to make a classic seasonal cake in two fresh new ways.

makes 1 {6-inch} cake

3/4 cups dark brown sugar
1/3 cup whole buttermilk
1/4 cup melted butter
1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 1/4 cups grated carrot, about 3
Cream Cheese Glaze

Toasted pecan halves 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 6-inch cake pan. Line the bottom with parchment paper & lightly grease. Set aside. Combine the brown sugar, the buttermilk, the butter, the lemon juice, the vanilla & the egg in a large mixing bowl. Blend on Low speed with an electric hand-mixer just until combined. Whisk together the flour, the cinnamon, the pumpkin pie spice, the baking soda & the salt in a small bowl. Add to the buttermilk mixture all at once. Blend on Low speed just until combined. Fold in the carrot using a rubber spatula. Portion the batter into the prepared pan. Place the pan on a quarter sheet pan & drop it about an inch from the countertop surface three times to settle the air bubbles to ensure an even rise during baking.

Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until a wooden pick tests clean. Let stand 5 minutes. Remove the cake from the pan then remove the parchment paper. Invert the cake onto a wire rack to cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours. Prepare the Cream Cheese Glaze as directed & pipe oval shapes. Top with toasted pecan halves. Let stand until set, about 1 hour.

How To Grate Carrots

Once carrots have been properly prepped & cleaned, it’s just a matter of grating them so they may be added to cake & fritter batters or even to use over salads.

A box grater is a smart tool to use in order to complete the task. Place it over a cutting board & be certain to hold it firmly by the handle. Begin moving the carrot down the large holes of the grater. The process should take less than 5 minutes to produce enough carrots for this batter in particular. Use as directed in specific recipe applications.
