You don’t need eggs and dairy to make a cake! You’ll be amazed at how moistfluffy and easy it is to make this vegan carrot cake recipe. Today I wanted to do my version of a vegan carrot cake which is pretty simple, nothing too fancy except the frosting! Seriously, nobody will guess that it’s vegan.

Did you know you can make donuts without any animal products and without frying too? It’s probably the healthiest and tastiest donut there is. There are so many options on a vegan diet, and you’ll be surprised to find out all about it while on that beautiful journey.

Carrots make cakes so wonderfully moist. And the same is definitely true for this dairy-free carrot cake. I find the usual frosting too sweet. I try something new and combine fresh ingredients with some nuts. The results are fantastic. The cake is moist, tender, and filled with warm, spiced flavor from cinnamon, and vanilla extract.

Vegan Carrot Cake

Most vegan carrot cake recipes rely on loads of oil, but this version is much lighter. I’ve cut some of the oil, using apple sauce to moisten. Cake for breakfast, why not? It tastes just as I expected and even better, yuuum!

And don’t forget, the taste and quality of your food are influenced by your energy too. That means if you have loving thoughts and joy while creating, it will be more beneficial for you and your family. It is called food vibration. We cant see it but, we can certainly feel and taste it. 

Sending love, always. xx
