How to Make Carrot Cake with Cake Mix

This Cream Cheese Carrot Bundt Cake is super easy to make. It starts with a box of cake mix and a can of frosting. Combine the cake mix, water, oil, eggs, and the frosting in a bowl. Mix with a handheld mixer. In a separate bowl, mix together cream cheese, eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Pour 3/4 of the cake batter into a Bundt cake pan. Spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the cake batter. Cover with remaining cake batter and bake.

  • DO NOT make the cake mix as directed on the box. Use the cake mix straight out of the box.
  • This does not work with other types of frosting. I’ve only had success with the coconut pecan canned frosting.
  • What really puts this cake over the top is the yummy cream cheese filling. It is basically a layer of cheesecake in the middle of the cake. My filling sank to the top of the cake, but it still tasted great!!!
  • Feel free to add some drained crushed pineapple to the cake batter.
  • Can Carrot Cake be made in advance? Yes! You can make this cake ahead of time and store it in an air-tight container. I will keep 3 days on the countertop and up to a week in the refrigerator.
  • Can Carrot Cake be frozen? Yes! You can freeze the baked cake for later. Cool the cake and wrap in plastic wrap and foil. Remove the cake at least an hour before serving and let thaw on the countertop.

We sprinkled this Cream Cheese Carrot Bundt Cake with some powdered sugar and served it with a dollop of whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce.

    1. I’ve only made this in a Bundt pan. I would suggest trying the 9×13-inch pan over the 9×9. I think the 9×9 would be way too small. I don’t know the cooking time for the sheet cake, so you would have to play with it.

  1. I couldn't find coconut pecan frosting at Publix, Winn-Dixie or Fresh 4 Less. I usually can find everything at Publix! Do you have a second favorite I might try?
