Vegan Carrot Cake With Creamy Frosting

Another challenging baking without eggs! Yeap, it's a vegan carrot cake. How often does people bake without eggs! Some even said baking without egg is totally insane. Honestly, cake made of eggs is much lighter of coz but cake without eggs is as good though. Besides, saving you quite a bit of money. *wink* :o) I have actually made a few vegan cakes for the coming celebration. It is definitely a big changed compare to other years cause I used to make cheesecake or butter cake. This year  my family members also requested for cheesecake but I made them vegan cake instead. haha.... Hopefully, they don't give me that disappointed look!

Ingredients :
(A)
3 cups  all purpose flour
3/4 cup  sugar
2 tspn  baking powder
1 tspn  baking soda
1/2 tspn  salt
1/2 tspn mixed spice
1/2 tspn  cinnamon powder

(B)
1 cup  corn oil
1 cup  fresh orange/lemon juice
2 tbps  vinegar
2 cups  grated carrots

(C)
1/2 cup  raisns
1 cup  roasted walnut, roughly chopped
1/3  cup  candied nutmeg, chopped

Method :
(1)  combine ingredients (A) into a big mixing bowl, mix well.
(2)  beat together ingredients (B) and then stir into (A) mixture till well combined.
(3)  lastly, add in ingredients (C) and mix well.
(4)  pour batter to a 9" tray lined with grease proof paper and bake at preheated oven 175'C for about 45-50 mins.
(5) once done, leave cool and then spread on desired frosting.

Ingredients for Vegan frosting :
113gm    margerine
1-1/2 cup  icing sugar
25ml    lemon + lime juice
one lemon zest
(beat together all ingredients till nice & fluffy)
# Double up this recipe if you want to spread a double layer cake, or you may use a smoother frosting recipe from here.

Sooooo...what do you think???? Does it look as good as those common carrot cake? Well, here's a very important tips I wanted to share with you guys. Remember, always keep your vegan cake refrigerated before serve or before frosting. It will keep the texture of the cake in good shape. I usually refrigerate it overnight. Hope you all will like it too!
