How to make it

  • 1. To make cheesecake,
  • 2. In large bowl of electric mixer, beat together 2 pkgs cream cheese and 3/4 cup sugar until smooth.
  • 3. Beat in 1 tablespoon flour, 3 eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla until smooth. Set aside.
  • 4. Meanwhile prepare Carrot Cake: In large bowl, combine oil, 1 cup sugar, 2 eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla, blending thoroughly.
  • 5. Stir in 1 cup flour, baking soda, cinnamon and dash salt, mixing well.
  • 6. Stir in drained pineapple, carrots, coconut and walnuts.
  • 7. Spread 1 1/2 cups carrot cake batter over bottom of greased 9-or 9 1/2-inch springform pan.
  • 8. ***Drop large spoonfuls of cream cheese batter over carrot cake batter; top with large spoonfuls of remaining carrot cake batter.
  • 9. Repeat with remaining cream cheese batter, spreading evenly with a knife.
  • 10. Do not marble with a knife.
  • 11. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 50 to 65 minutes or until cake is set and cooked through.
  • 12. Cool to room temperature, then refrigerate.
  • 13. When cake is cold, prepare Pineapple Cream Cheese Frosting.
  • 14. In a bowl of electric mixer, combine 8 oz cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 1 tablespoon reserved pineapple juice and dash of salt.
  • 15. Beat until smooth and of spreading consistency.
  • 16. Frost top of cheesecake.
  • 17. Refrigerate 3 to 4 hours before serving.
  • ***After several times of making this. I pour the carrot cake layer, instead of marbling it. I just gently pour on the cheesecake mixture and bake it. I like the different layers. Any way this is an amazing recipe. Please give this a try if you love carrot cake and cheesecake!
  • **Frosting: What I use. Same as listed above. I end up putting in the entire stick of butter and well drained (1/4 cup) crushed pineapples. DO NOT OVER DO ON THE JUICE or the frosting will be thin. Drain pineapples well, I squeeze it. If you must add more confectioners sugar. I usually dont have too. I don't make my frosting very sweet. This carrot cheesecake is plenty sweet and this icing compliments is so well. I thought it would be to much, BUT OHHHHHHH is it out of this world!

    I made this tonight. It's still in the oven actually. I just mixed up the frosting. I had a lemon in the fridge so I zested it and squeezed the juice from half of it into my frosting (instead of the pineapple)

    WoW! I made this and it IS delicious! I shared it with the lady that does my hair, and she now has to submit the recipe to three friends once I email it to her. Then I shared it with a co-worker who now has to share the recipe with family members. My husband is in love with it. I loved it! Thank you for a great post. This is too good for words. . .really :D
