Carrot Bundt Cake with Cream Cheese Swirl

Love carrot cake but don’t want to bake and frost a layer cake?  This carrot bundt cake with a cream cheese swirl and cream cheese frosting is the answer!  Moist, delicious, and the best part: easy to make with minimal decorating necessary.

Springtime and carrot cakes always go hand in hand.  And the warmer weather and shining sun tell me that springtime has arrived!

Here in the mid-Atlantic, carrot season is really June through September, so I always found this spring association with carrot cakes a little confusing.

Is it because somehow Easter is represented by a rabbit and rabbits eat carrots?  Do families buy bags of carrots to leave out for the Easter Bunny and then need something to do with all the carrots?

Even though carrots and spring don’t really make sense, I’m just going to go ahead and play along, because carrot cakes are delicious.

(And fortunately thanks to modern grocery stores, we can get carrots year round, so this is equally perfect in all seasons, if you’re a carrot cake lover!)
