I made this for my husband's birthday because he wanted a carrot cake and a cheesecake. He and others at the party absolutely loved it! I thought it was good but not my favorite but I think that is just a personal preference. I doubled the frosting and made half of it white and half of it turquoise and decorated the top with a pretty design (I submitted the picture!) Also, I would reduce the temperature to 300 to 325 degrees and increase the baking time to 1 hour and 20 minutes to make sure it gets cooked through all the way and the edges don't burn.

This recipe does not deserve 5 stars. It deserves 10 stars. I may be partial because carrot cake and cheesecake are my 2 most favorite desserts so putting them together put me over the edge in happiness. It was delicious. Next time I will play a little bit more with the time and temperature. I think I will go a little lower on the temperature and bake it for a little longer. The very, very middle of the cake was very soft but I couldn't leave it in any longer or the top would have developed cracks. I suggest adding a dash of salt to the cream cheese frosting. This is a winner of a recipe.

This recipe is absolutely AMAZING and so easy!!!!!!! I received many compliments on it, some said I should start selling the cake:) Few minor changes, I baked the cake at 325 degrees for 1 hour. Then I turned the oven off, and let it sit in the oven with the door closed for about 45 minutes. I also added nutmeg and doubled the frosting and frosted the side of the cake as well. I cannot believe a cake this good could be so easy !!! Definitely try it out!!
