This delicious carrot cake is not only great for Easter. You like carrots and you’re looking for a change to eat them, then you should definitely try this delicious vegan carrot cake.

The sugar content is in the peel

Do you want to use less sugar in the recipe ?! Then just use the whole carrot with peel. If you do not know it yet, the sweetness of the carrot is especially in the peel. I did not know myself until recently. Just wash the carrots and rasp them with the peel.
