Ina’s 5-Star Carrot Cake is the Only Dessert You Need This Easter

Trust me on this.

Baking a cake seems simple enough: just measure, mix and set a timer, right? Simple, that is, until your smoke detector starts beeping and you open the oven door to find batter billowing over the edges of the cake pan — and spilling onto the floor of your oven.

Sound familiar? We’ve all been there. Don’t let it rob you of your confidence. A huge part of baking is having a great recipe: something reliable that’s guaranteed to work every time.

That's exactly what I love about Ina’s Carrot and Pineapple Cake. It’s a tried-and-true classic — with more than 500 reviews and a 5-star rating. Ina’s genius twist (using fresh, diced pineapple instead of crushed, canned fruit) gives this cake amazing flavor and helps it bake up perfectly moist and tender, without fail.

And seriously, with fan comments like “...absolutely THE best carrot cake” and “...another foolproof Ina recipe” it’s hard not to rush to the kitchen and bake one right now. Even non-believers love this cake. One says, “I’m not a fan of carrot cake, but this was DELICIOUS!!!”

With Easter right around the corner (and along with it, the pressure to cook a crowd-pleasing meal) there’s no better time to try Ina’s 5-star carrot cake recipe. Trust me: You only need to bake one cake for Easter dessert — and this is the one.
