I made you a Vegan Carrot Cake! I am going to let you in on a secret. I am probably the only person in the world who doesn’t like carrot cake. My husband on the other hand, LOVES it. In fact, he cannot go to Whole Foods without getting their carrot cake slice from the bakery. He loves the whole foods cake, but the icing is too sugary for him. So I tried to make a healthier version for him. That is how this vegan carrot cake was born. I used no oil at all in this vegan carrot cake recipe. You don’t have to be vegan or gluten free to enjoy this healthier carrot cake recipe. If you like this then you may also like my carrot cake baked oatmeal or my carrot cake homemade larabars.
You are probably wondering why there are no raisins in my carrot cake. Well I gotta be honest. Sometimes I make mistakes. I actually wrote the recipe to include raisins. I just forgot to fold them in the batter before I moved it to the pan. I also only made 1 pan instead of doing a layered cake because I wasn’t sure how the recipe would turn out. If you want to make a bigger cake with layers, feel free to make 2 batches of this recipe and put them together. I used my 5 minute frosting recipe to frost this, but you can use a cream cheese frosting if you like too.
