24-Carrot Cake Pancakes

(Makes 1-2 servings)

All you have to do is mix the dry ingredients for 24-Carrot Cake Cupcakes. This can be done days in advance if you wish. Divide the mix into 4 equal servings. In one of those servings, add 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, level 2 tbsp applesauce , and 1/4 cup shredded carrot.  Then add 4-6 tbsp liquid to the mix and stir.

The best part?  You still have three more servings with which you can make cupcakes, pizza, bread, or… more pancakes!

Other topping ideas:


Of course, there’s coconut butter.


And then there’s also: Maple syrup, agave, Soyatoo & jam, raisins & apples, vanilla icing, pineapple juice, strawberries and tofutti cream cheese… I could go on and on.

    Your carrot cake with the fence is adorable Katie! I like to eat everything in loaf forms, so I think my favorite would probably be a carrot cake bread made in a loaf pan.

  2. I just ordered some coconut butter and I am SO excited to get it!! My favorite carrot cake is just that – cake! :)

  3. eaternotarunner says:

    I want that carrot cake pizza! I love carrot cake cupcakes and clif bars :-)

    I have a carrot bar recipe that has been in the family for generations now. My Great-Grandmother used to make it when she didn’t have the ingredients to make carrot cake w/ raisins, walnuts, etc. during the Depression. I’ve tried to vegan-ize it, but it was disastrous, so I’ll have to keep playing with it! But I have succeeded in eliminating the dairy, so it gets 2 thumbs way up from me ‘n my kiddo!

  5. Kristie says:

    Katie, these pancakes look amazing!!! I have to say though that good old carrot cake in its original form will always be my favorite – and the only way I like cake pretty much :)

  6. Lexi says:

    I love carrot cake! Your pancakes look amazing.

    Favorite form of CC: the real thing, actual cake, with cream cheese frosting, or a carrot cake muffin!

  7. Jessica says:

    I’m a big carrot cake fan myself! Personally, I don’t think it gets enough love. You know what I think would be really good? Carrot cake banana butter! I’d use almond butter, banana, shredded carrot, a shake of cinnamon, and maybe some coconut too. Yum! :)

  8. JCD says:

    Mmmm… carrot cake pancakes are a great idea! I love carrot cake too – in it’s natural form without icing, in muffin form, and in salad form! (shredded carrot and raisin salad is a HUGE favourite in our house)

  9. Miss Katie, I know EXACTLY what I’m sending you in your package!! 😀 😀 Ill give you a hint: you just might love it.

    These pancakes look amazing!! Vegan thursday may have to involve carrot cake waffles. (I’m obsessed with waffles. Is that strange?)

  10. those pancakes look pretty good. i need to work on perfecting my pancake flipping skillz; they never turn out in one whole piece!

  11. Veggiesmack says:

    I think I like carrot cak in all forms. Nom!

    Your carrot cake pancakes look terrific! I would love to slather them in some Tofutti cream cheese!

  12. Little Bookworm says:

    I love carrot cake, and those pancakes look amazing!

  13. Susan says:

    Katie all your recipes always make me drool!! I love your pictures.

    Unfort, I lack many of the ingredients and equipment to make your amazing concoctions while I’m at school, so I guess I’ll have to wait and indulge when I go home on breaksie!

  14. Evan Thomas says:

    Carrot cake is by far my favorite cake. It always has been. I asked for it for my 6th grade graduation! I love carrot cake cookies–they taste the same as the full thing but are nicely portable.

  15. Cindy says:

    oh those pancakes look and sound delish! I do like carrot cake but don’t make it often…don’t know why. I should!

    and I would have to agree that using chopsticks makes eating just plain FUN!

  16. Carrot Cake pancakes? I think I love you :)
    I . Love. Coconut. Butter.
    I love all Artisana…but there is only one store that sells it and its kinda far away, so i dont go there often…plus Artisana is WAY too expensive for my poor body :(
    Love the pics.

  17. Stefanie says:

    You can’t go wrong with carrot cake. All of your ideas sound sooo good. I like plain carrot cake muffins but may be trying some of your ideas/recipes.

  18. vegebon says:

    So nice ideas of carrot cake variations ! I love the pancake and sandwich ones, so original and nicely falvored ! You are so creative :).

  19. Gena says:

    As always, your culinary creations and variations are mouth-watering!

  20. Danielle says:

    Yessss I was waiting for this post 😀
    Thanks for the recipe! Carrot Cake cereal? Um…expect to see this in the NEAR future

  21. welshsarah says:

    I’m addicted to carrots, a salad just doesn’t feel right without them! I’ve never tried american-style pancakes; think I’m going to have give these ones a shot.

  22. Chrysta says:

    aaahhh so good. I have a weakness for carrot cake too and to make it in pancake form. LOVE it! how awesome. Would be amazing with the coconut butter or the cheesecake mousse like you suggested. I gotta get on this and start making me some pancakes!=)

    I hope you are having a rockin day!

  23. You just change my life. Seriously.

  24. Totally digging the th idea of carrot pancakes! How clever are you! Have a beautiful day :-) Much aloha!

  25. Monica says:

    Those pancakes just brought little teardrops to my eyes. I wish that were an exaggeration, but I’m totally not kidding! I’m seriously craving some pancake lovin’ at this very moment! Since I will probably be making these tonight for dinner, I’ll most likely top them with chocolate chips…call me crazy, but that sounds delish.

    Thanks for setting off my pancake cravings,

    Monica :)

  26. Kat says:

    YUM! Carrot cake rocks.

  27. OMG Carrot Cake = dessert love of my life, just behind ice cream. Thank you for coming up with cake-alternatives that are still carrot cake flavored. :)

    And in a twist of irony, I was just catching up on your last couple posts about stressing out about not commenting as much as you’d like…and here I am like 5 posts later just now commenting on that! Suffice it to say I hear ya, and my blog doesn’t get half the hits yours does, so I can only imagine the pressure you feel to return comments! Please, it should be the last thing you worry about. but I’m sure everyone else has echoed that thought!

    Just go have a fun “real” life. :)

  28. Christina says:

    Wow, a carrot cake sandwich sounds like a genius idea!

  29. carrot cake pancakes…nice job!
    homemade syrup…I make a few concoctions myself. I adore carrot cake but as a GF vegan, I havent had it in ages…need to work on that!

  30. Dang, girl! You know how to eat well! 😉 Everything here is mouth-watering.

  31. Stef @ moretolifethanlettuce says:

    brilliance! i love that you divide up the base into 4, so nice to have something to work with for other yummy creations!

  32. homecookedem says:

    I think I just drooled on my laptop. No, really! :) Looks so delicious!! :)

  33. Chef Aimee says:

    Oh that carrot cake pizza looks sooooo delicious! Mmmm!

  34. Katie says:

    I love those muffins, and I just added this to my “to make” list!

  35. Hannah says:

    Maybe a carrot cake ice cream, with finely grated carrot, cinnamon, and nutmeg mixed into that frozen-banana icecream trick, sprinkled with some cacao nibs?

    It’s only an idea, but I kind of want it right now…

  36. Megan says:

    Good ol’ standard carrot cake is my favorite. My mom has this carrot cake recipe that is beyond out of this world. It is so good it should be illegal.

  37. Jenna says:

    All look great!!

  38. Jenny says:

    double up that pancake recipe and have them reading for tomorrow morning?! I’ll be there to join you 😉 ah, in my dreams!

  39. I love carrot cake pancakes myself. So yummy filled with plumped raisins and topped with coconut love in a jar. :) Dying to know about this “homemade syrup”. Why you always teasing us Katie??? 😉

  40. Have you tried making an oatmeal version of carrot cake yet? That would be interesting to see. 😉

  41. jqlee says:

    My favorite carrot is definitely carrot cake. So bad for you but soooo good.

    Is that ONE serving that you have pictured Katie? That’s a whole lotta pancakes. My belly would enjoy all those pancakes :)

  42. liz says:

    those pancakes look yum! i use agave nectar on my pancakes and it’s a marriage made in heaven.

  43. Melinda says:

    I am so sorry to say i do not like carrot cake. My husband does though. I am just too into chocolate.

  44. Tiffany says:

    carrot cake for breakfast! i’m saving this recipe right NOW! 😀

  45. Shelby says:

    Oh, wow. I found this linked over from a post about the pancakes, but as I scrolled down and see pizza, and muffins, and theeen the pancakes. Oh, wow. I’ll be needing lots of carrots this week…!

  47. Heather says:

  48. Ali says:

  51. Dana Marie says:

    You’re so pretty! I’d love to win some artisana!

  52. Molly says:

    I haven’t tried the agave syrup yet, but we made some sweet tea last night and used agave to sweeten it. I find that I have to use a lot of it to get it as sweet as sugar, but I do enjoy the taste a little better. I’m excited to see what your syrup recipe consists of!
