How To Make Mini Carrot Cake Cheesecakes

Although this dessert is perfect for Easter, and spring, you can make it or any time you’d like, because all done from start to finish in about an hour!

Carrot Cake

Carrot cake is comfort food filled with warm cinnamon flavour, pecans and sweet carrot strings that melts perfectly into the batter.

Make sure to use freshly grated carrots, Don’t use pre-shredded carrots. They have slightly less flavor, and juice, so if you want good carrot cake, you need good stuff.
Instead of pecans you can use walnuts or almond, and can add raisins, too, if you like them.

To make the cake batter, mix wet ingredients: egg, oil and vanilla with sugar and brown sugar, then add dry ingredients (flour, baking agents, salt and cinnamon), and mix to combine. Finally, mix in carrots and pecans.


Cheesecake filling takes these mini carrot cakes to another level. Adding cream cheese frosting on top, would make them cupcakes. But a cream cheese center adds the same flavor, plus less sugar, and less fuss.

Just beat cream cheese with a sugar, vanilla, just a bit of flour and an egg. The filling sets like a cheesecake.

Also, use brick style cream cheese. This makes the nice texture.

Cinnamon Brown Sugar Streusel

The streusel adds a nice, crunch texture, to smooth, and soft cake and creamy filling. And is also full of warm flavors of brown sugar and cinnamon. However, it’s not necessary, I wouldn’t skip it.

How To Store Mini Cheesecakes

You can keep these Mini Carrot Cake Cheesecakes on the counter up to one day. For longer storage place them in in a fridge in air-tight container.
