The History of Carrot Cake
Made popular in the U.S. in the 1960s, carrot cake is a delightful blend of sweet and spicy cake topped off with cream cheese frosting. It can be made using a traditional recipe or dressed up with extras like nuts, pineapple and coconut. But no one is quite sure where it originated.
Most food historians agree that the carrot cake we enjoy today is probably descended from sweet cakes, sometimes called carrot pudding, made in Medieval Europe between the 5th and 15th centuries. Sugar was scarce at the time, and expensive. Carrots, along with sugar beets, contain more sugar than other vegetables. Because carrots were plentiful, they were often substituted for sugar in sweet desserts.
The first known carrot cake recipe came from Switzerland in 1892, where it remains one of the most popular cakes, especially for children’s birthday parties.
