Why I Love This Recipe

No one could ever guess that this moist cake is vegan! Kids love it and I like to serve it with a sugar toping instead of the traditional carrot cake icing.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 cups of flour
1/4 cups of sugar (or dry sweetener)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cups soy milk (or almond milk)
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup oil (used sunflower or safflower oil)
2 Tbsp of cornstarch mixed with 2 Tbsp of water (to replace 1 egg)
1/2 cup carrot, finely shredded
1 tsp ginger, grated

1/4 to 1/2 cup of brown sugar
Approx. 1-2 Tbsp of oil
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a large bowl stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

Add soy milk, vanilla, oil, egg replacer (cornstarch mixed with water), carrot and ginger and mix together gently until "just mixed". Don't over mix it!

Pour in lightly oiled cake pan.

In a separate bowl, mix the topping ingredients. When well mixed (you wan the brown sugar to be wet- add a bit of oil if needed), sprinkle the topping on top of the cake.

Put the cake in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes.

Check with knife to see if done. Enjoy!
