All of them are made from cake mix, so it’s very easy and very delicious. What I like about earthquake cakes is that they have frosting inside, so you can eat them warm. warm cake? Yes, please!

This cake recipe is also a great alternative to the classic carrot cake. Not only is it easy, but it’s baked all the way through, so you don’t have to worry about making it beautiful with icing. Great for travel, I love taking this to friends’ houses and holiday dinners… It serves directly from the 9×13 baking dish so you don’t have to worry about the cake tipping over or being transported.

Tips for success:

This is a recipe that requires very minimal prep time and is very difficult to screw up.

  • Don’t overcook! This is probably true of any dessert. The characteristic of the earthquake cake is that it becomes a little loose in the middle when it is ready. The edges are set and golden, but still wiggle a little. The whipped cream cheese will harden as it cools. Think of it like cheesecake. The center should not be completely set when you remove it from the oven. Insert a toothpick about 2 inches from the edge for a nice clean finish.
  • Depending on how your oven bakes, rotate the pan halfway through. Also, if the surface looks like it’s going to burn before baking, cover the frying pan with aluminum foil to prevent the surface from burning any further.
  • Whether you make chocolate, vanilla, carrot cake, pumpkin, or any flavor of earthquake cake, it’s made exactly the same way.
