Who doesn't love carrot cake? Carrot cake is great for a lunch dessert or an afternoon snack. This vegan cake recipe is light, moist, and easy to prepare, and, of course, completely egg-free and dairy-free. Yum! You might also want to try this sugar-free vegan carrot cake recipe, which uses dates instead of sugar as a sweetener. Top with a vegan cream cheese frosting.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups grated carrots
  • 1 1/2 cups raisins
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup soy milk

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium sized saucepan, gently simmer the carrots, raisins, water, and spices for 8-10 minutes. Add the sugar and salt and allow to cook for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.

In a large bowl, combine the flour and baking soda. Add the carrot mixture, along with the soy milk, and combine just until mixed.

Lightly grease a 9x9 inch baking pan and pour in the batter. Bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Frost with a vegan cream cheese frosting. Enjoy!

no acid!!, Guest Papalocks

This would be a great recipe if it had an acid to activate the baking soda as a leavening agent. I made it and it turned out very dense and hardly rose. had it had baking powder in place of the soda it would work or if it had an acid like lemon juice or vinegar to activate the soda it would work fine. As it is this recipe needs to be adjusted to be worth making!
