  • Summary

    All the elements you love are in this lighter, more elegant take on carrot cake. There's the sweet, moist cake and the luscious cream cheese frosting but bonus, there's also a layer of apricot jam. Another plus, it's easier to assemble than a layer cake.

    • 2 large eggs
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
