Toffee Covered Carrot Cake



My husband made a goal this year to bake each person in our family a cake for their birthday. He has always loved cooking and wanted to get more into baking (lucky me, right?), so this seemed like the perfect way to get started. Jake's mom wanted a carrot cake for her birthday, so he set out to create the perfect recipe. It turned out so great I had to share it!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup apple sauce
2 cups shredded carrots (packed)
1 tbsp white vinegar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup pecans (crushed)
3 large eggs
Toffee bits

Directions:

1. Combine all ingredients but toffee bits in mixing bowl.
2. Pour into 9 inch spring-form pan.
3. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
4. Let cool 10 minutes.
5. Spread frosting onto cake.
6. Sprinkle toffee bits on top.

Frosting:

1 8 oz package cream cheese
1 5 oz cup plain greek yogurt
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup flour
