Take Heart!

Carrots and Nothing Else Cake

Serves: 12

Preparation time: 20 minutes


1/2 cup canola oil

1/2 cup apple sauce (you can use oil also if you don't want the "lower fat" version)

3 "eggs"-- flax seed and Ener-g eggs both work well

3 cups shredded carrot

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons cinnamon or pie spice


- This is a modified version of a carrot cake recipe I have. All of the vegan recipes I was finding had other ingredients (pineapple, coconut, etc) in them. I wanted straight up carrot cake. This makes a nice, moist cake. My officemate and carrot cake lover requests this.

- Mix all of the wet ingredients and the sugar in a bowl until well mixed. Add the carrots and mix.

- In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Once both bowls are ready, mix together to form batter.

- Pour into a 9 by 13 cake pan. Put into preheated 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes. It is done when a toothpick comes out clean. If you use other sized pans (rounds, for example) be sure to adjust your baking time.

- Let cool and enjoy! I just put powered sugar on mine but you can be more creative.

- Feel free to also add other goodies, like coconut, walnuts, or whatever sounds good to you.
