For today though, here is a special treat (literally). Vegan Carrot Cake. Need I say more! Okay, so I'm a really healthy eater. Most of the meals I make are vegetarian or vegan-only because I don't like cooking meat (but I love eating it). And also because those cuisines are healthy. Anyway, my parents eat a lot of chicken and meat with their meals so when they hear or see the word "vegan" they tend to avoid it. Well, I had a discussion with my mom about how a lot of vegan food is really good, health-wise because of the substitutions such as applesauce and flaxseed. Fast-forward a few days and I offer to bake my sister a carrot cake for her friend. It had to be vegan. I hadn't baked anything since Thanksgiving (I know! its been too long!) so I was more than happy to do it. I searched the internet and found a recipe which was not healthy BUT was vegan and so delicious. It took every ounce of willpower to not go back for 3rds. I ended up making 2 cakes. One for my sister's friend and one for my family. Anyway, my mom was shocked at how delicious a vegan dessert could be. Personally, I could taste no difference between a vegan carrot cake and a regular non-vegan carrot cake. The only thing I did differently on my family's carrot cake was the icing. I used regular cream cheese. The vegan cream cheese was too watery for my taste. Click here for the recipe.
