An Eggless Carrot Cake that everyone will think is delicious.

By substituting margarine for butter the recipe becomes suitable for vegans as well. An Eggless Carrot Cake as well as a Vegan Carrot Cake.

The cake is lovely and moist thanks largely to the cup of grated carrots and soy milk. It’s lightly spiced with vanilla and cinnamon and the earthy crunch of walnuts provides a nice texture contrast. You could always add a few raisins or sultanas if you were so inclined. And maybe a touch of coconut too.

Eggless cakes can be on the dense side and so are naturally very well suited to carrot cake.

Beware any Eggless Carrot Cake that over-does the leavening agent in an attempt to get a light fluffy cake. They usually just end up tasting like baking soda.

One trick with this Eggless Carrot Cake is not to over mix the batter. Treat it like a muffin mix and gently fold the ingredients together but only until they are just combined.

You would never know that this recipe is eggless (or vegan if you opt for the margarine sub). This is an egg-free carrot cake that even your egg eating and non vegan friends will enjoy.

Carrot cake for everyone I say.

The clever baker behind this Eggless Carrot Cake is Pika Chakula.

    This is a really lovely cake. I didn’t have walnuts but chopped a selection of what I had. For those on limited sugar replace the white sugar with Stevia. It will be a regular on my favourite cakes!

      Hi Mena – it really is a good cake recipe isn’t it. Good tip with the stevia sub too.
      Goes to show that just because it’s an “eggless carrot cake” doesn’t mean it’s missing taste, texture or anything else. Everyone will enjoy this cake.

    Hey! Can I use Whole Wheat Flour instead of the regular one?

    • Patricia | The Answer Is Cake

      Sure Lexi – just expected a slightly coarser texture – “rustic” as it is sometimes described.

    Can i use standard milk rather than soya?

    • Patricia

      Yes you can. I often sub standard milk for soya milk and I’ve never had a problem.
