  • 3
    Separate 2 cans (16.3 oz each) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Southern Homestyle Honey Butter Biscuits into 16 biscuits. Cut each into quarters. Add biscuit quarters to carrot mixture in bowl; gently toss to coat. Spoon coated biscuit quarters evenly into pan. Pour any remaining liquid over top.
  • 4
    Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until thoroughly baked and toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. If necessary, during last 5 to 10 minutes of baking, loosely cover with foil to avoid overbrowning. Remove from oven; cool in pan on cooling rack 10 minutes.
  • 5
    Run knife gently around edge of pan. Place serving platter upside down over pan; turn platter and pan over. Remove pan.

    Spread or drizzle 1 container cream cheese creamy ready-to-spread frosting over top. Sprinkle with additional chopped pecans. Serve warm.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you like your carrot cake “loaded,” try adding golden raisins and/or flaked coconut to the mixture! Don’t like nuts? Leave them out! Prefer walnuts? Go ahead and substitute!
  • tip 2
    Store leftovers in the refrigerator and reheat slices in the oven for about 5 to 8 minutes at 350°F.
