Vegan Carrot Cake

Over the past week I received all so many requests on my instagram account (@gabnikolaidis) for some good carrot cake. I already have posted a super tasty carrot cake recipe (you may check it here) but I decided to come up with a new vegan version of it.
In my opinion this one tastes even better and stays fresh for more that 4 or 5 days.

Ingredients

For the Cake
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 250 gr flour
  • 240 gr almond Milk
  • 300 gr sugar
  • 200 gr coconut oil
  • 240 gr grated carrots
For the frosting
  • 215 grams vegan margarine (lactose free)
  • 260 grams confectioners sugar
  • 24 ml almond milk
  • ¾ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon almond extract

Instructions

For the Cake
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease 3 round baking pans (15 cm diameter).
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond milk, vanilla, sugar and oil.
  • Mix the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients.
  • Fold in the carrots and stir until just combined.
  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cake cool completely before frosting. Better to leave it overnight
For the Frosting
  • Transfer the margarine to a medium mixing bowl and whip on low while working your way up to high until it is smooth. This should take about 30 seconds.
  • Add the confectioners sugar and beat on high until the sugar has been moistened, about another 30 seconds. Scrape the sides of the bowl down towards the center with a spatula.
  • Add the non-dairy milk, apple cider vinegar, vanilla extract, salt, almond extract and beat on high until the frosting is smooth and slightly fluffy, about 4 minutes.
  • Place it in the fridge to firm up.
When everything is ready and in room temperature, cover each cake with the frosting and place one on top of the other.
