How to make Carrot Cake Cheesecake Cake

To make the cheesecake layer:

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 325 degrees.

Step 2: Pour inch water into a large roasting pan and put it on the bottom 2/3 of the oven before preheating the oven.

Step 3: Use a foil to wrap the outside bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Then, line the inside with a circle shape parchment paper.

Step 4: In a mixing bowl, add the cream cheese and granulated sugar. Beat for about 2 to 3 minutes or until creamy before adding in the salt and eggs. Add the eggs a piece at a time, beating well every after each addition.

Step 5: Add in the sour cream and heavy cream. Beat for about 2 minutes or until light and fluffy.

Step 6: Pour this into the prepared pan. Position the pan in the middle of the roasting pan in the preheated oven. Be careful not to spill the water.

Step 7: Bake for approximately 45 minutes. Then, turn the oven off but don’t take the cheesecake out. Let it sit in the oven for 30 minutes.

Step 8: After the additional 30 minutes, remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it cool completely on the counter.

Step 9: Once the cheesecake is completely cooled. Place the pan in the freezer for a couple of hours or overnight. Or just refrigerate if using the cheesecake within 24 hours.

Step 2: Then, grease and flour two 9-inch cake pans.

Step 3: Add the sugar, oil, and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Mix well until blended. Stir in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. And beat for approximately 2 minutes before adding in the shredded carrots.

Step 4: Evenly divide the batter into the prepared cake pans.

Step 5: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes.

Step 6: Remove from the oven and allow the cakes to cool on wire racks for at least 10 minutes before removing them in the pans to completely cool.

For the frosting:

Step 1: Add the cream cheese and butter in a large mixing bowl. Using a whisk attachment, beat for about 3 minutes.

Step 2: Add in the sugar, vanilla, and the heavy cream. Beat for another 3 to 4 minutes or until light and fluffy before folding in the chopped pecan.
