Carrot Ginger Fig Cake: An Updated Classic

Motivated by the ingredients in my fridge, many acquired in excess because I forgot I already had them… oops, but who hasn’t done that before (insert Mom’s Mustard story). Made with fresh ginger, organic carrots, orange zest, dried figs and a white chocolate frosting, this dessert is a crowd pleaser. The recipe was inspired by a Bon Appetite classic and an experimental frosting (thanks sweetapolita for pairing white chocolate – carrot), made two ways – cream cheese or sour cream white chocolate. I love them both!

The recipe works great as cupcakes (makes ~ 24), layer cake, sheet or Bundt cake – pick your pan!
