There is nothing as good as a carrot cake that balances the perfect amount of spices, delicious cream cheese frosting, and a bouncy, moist crumb. Everyone remembers their favorite carrot cake and now, with this perfect recipe, all your friends will ask you to make it for special holidays, birthdays, and celebrations.
There are a few secret ingredients in this recipe. The first is the pineapple in the frosting, which makes for an unexpected and how-have-I-never-thought-of-that moment. The other secret ingredient is the inclusion of a fruity beer like Apricot Ale. The beer helps keep the cake moist, but also gives it a nice boost of stone fruit flavor that complements all the other goodies.
