There really is nothing like sitting down to enjoy a rich slice of carrot cake and a hot cup of tea. Imagine smooth, sweet cream cheese frosting atop an unbelievably moist carrot cake; better yet a completely gluten-free, nut free and vegan version in cupcake form. Yes please!
When I first started following a completely gluten-free lifestyle, there was definitely a learning curve when it came to baking, and I’m still learning. This particular recipe however, through various trials and tribulations, has reached its point of perfection. It is dense, yet light, and moist, just like its non-vegan, wheat based counterpart, and has an amazing flavor that holds up even without the frosting. Add a generous layer of luscious cream cheese frosting and you’ve got yourself an amazingly decadent treat to enjoy, while still packing in lots of nutrients….
