Vegan Carrot Cake!

Okay so first things first.... GO VOTE FOR SUKI!!!! So far she's moved to 2114th place so seeing as how she was at around 6000th place yesterday morning we are doing well! VOTE at 

Seriously, who could resist this face?

Now onto the main reason you are here:
Vegan Carrot Cake

I have always gotten rave reviews for this recipe from both vegans and non-vegans alike! Just recently I was asked to make it for a friends wedding so trust me it is a must try recipe!!!!
1½ cups whole wheat flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon 
2 tsp allspice
¼ tsp salt
1 whole carrot, shredded (the larger the carrot the more carroty the cake is)
1½ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup icing sugar
3 Tbsp maple syrup 
2 tsp cinnamon 

1) Preheat oven to 350 F. 
2) Grease a 9x9 inch cake pan. 
3) In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, soda, sugar, salt, allspice & cinnamon in a medium bowl.
4) In a large bowl, mix applesauce, vanilla and carrots.
5) Add dry mix to wet mix in 3-4 batches. Stir until just combined. 
6) Fill pan and bake 20-30 minutes or until a fork inserted in the center comes out clean.

1) combine icing sugar, maple syrup, and cinnamon and mix until the consistency you like (add more maple syrup to make it more liquid or more icing sugar to make it more stiff, add cinnamon to taste)

ENJOY!!! Tomorrow I will be posting an update on how Suki is doing (and yes you can vote for her once everyday so go back and do it!) and my recipe for a mouth-watering pumpkin brownie!

Have a great day and GO VOTE!!!!


  1. i want to make this right now but i'm on a juice detox for the next 48 hours!! I found a juicer in the house and I can't wait to make you some juice concoctions next time i see you. PSSSS. look up the health master- its half the price of a vitamix; and i just so happen to have one I am going to give to you :)!
    ps. GO SUKIII, she got it from her momma

  2. So excited!!!!!! and thnx!... goal for today is to get suki into the hundreds so keep on voting people!!!!!

  3. just took it out of the oven, SMELLS AMAZING! and the icing seems really thick i added maple syrup but how soon after do u put it on? i'm thinking it should melt a bit?

  4. Let me know what you think of the cake! I usually let the cake cool before i put the icing on.
