Vegan Carrot Cake is a sweet cake made from grated carrots, coconut, walnuts, and brown sugar. It’s gluten free and vegan, which means no eggs or dairy. This cake is perfect for the vegans or those with food allergies in your life!
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease two 8-inch round cake pans.
In a bowl combine dry ingredients (flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, baking soda).
Mix in all other ingredients until well combined (carrots, coconut, banana, pineapple, walnuts, almond milk, oil, vanilla, lemon juice).
Pour evenly into cake pans. Bake 40-45 minutes, or until cakes are golden brown and a fork comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool before frosting.
Once cooled, place one cake on plate and add half of the frosting in a layer on top. Place other cake on top of that, and add remaining frosting in a layer on top.
Decorate with walnuts and shredded coconut.
Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer, combine all ingredients until smooth.
