Yummy Vegan Carrot Cake

This recipe is suitable for a: vegetarian/vegan diet.



2-1/4 cups all purpose flour

(OR 1 cup WW pastry flour and 1 1/2 cups reg. flour)

3/4 cup light brown cane vegan sugar

1/4 cup white sugar

3 egg equivalent in Ener-G vegan egg replacer

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup vegetable oil (I use about 1/2 cup and add a bit of applesauce)

2 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or allspice

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups finely grated carrots

1 can (about 14 oz) crushed pineapple, drained (I don't drain all the way)

1 cup shredded coconut

nuts and raisins optional (I use gold raisins and chopped pecans, plump the raisins in some of the pineapple juice))



Preheat oven to 350°.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, spice, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, mix sugar and "eggs" until creamy (works best with an electric mixer) - add vanilla, then add vegetable oil. Mix wet and dry ingredients together and add carrots, pineapple, and coconut.

Add the nuts and raisins if you're using them...

I like a thicker cake, so I use a 9x9 glass pan.

But use a 13x9 if you want.

Grease pan. Smooth batter out in the pan.

Bake for 40 - 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Cool thoroughally and frost.


"Cream Cheese" Frosting recipe:

I'm not a huge fan of "Tofutti Cream Cheese" plain, but it is perfect for use in this frosting!

1 package vegan "cream cheese" 1/3 cup vegan soy margarine (like Earth Balance), softened. 1 tsp. vanilla and 2 cups vegan confectioners sugar

With an electric mixer, beat "cream cheese" and margarine. Add vanilla, then add sugar.

Frost cooled cake


The nuts and raisins, add as few or as many as you want - it's good either way.

This sounds like a lot of work, but it's not really. I just made it again today and it's SO yummy!!

is my absolute favorite type of cake and this one turns out SOOOo good!!!!

Thanks for this delicious-sounding recipe. It's one I will use on one of my non-calorie restricted days(I'm on the 5:2 Diet)
