Yummy Vegan Carrot Cake

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Since I love cakes, this time, I thought of experimenting with a vegan carrot cake. This recipe is very simple and easy to make. It’s both healthy (ish) and tasty! So let’s get started!


  • 1 cup of grated carrot
  • 1 cup of sugar powder
  • 1 cup of soy milk
  • ½ cup of all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup of cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • A pinch of salt
  • Water


Step 1: Preheat your oven to 170 degrees and start preparing the batter.

Step 2: Take a bowl, add the grated carrot, sugar powder, soy milk, and cooking oil. Now mix these ingredients well. Stir it slowly and gently.

Step 3: Next, add the cinnamon powder, vanilla essence, and salt to the batter. Combine well.

Step 4: Once the batter is ready, lightly grease a baking pan.

Step 5: Pour the batter in the cake pan and spread it evenly. You can use the back of a spoon to create a smooth and even surface.

Step 6: Bake the carrot cake for about 45-50 minutes. If a knife is inserted into the center comes out clean,  it's done.

Once the cake is ready, remove it from the oven and apply a vegan cream frosting. You can also add chocolate chips or walnuts to the carrot cake. I personally like adding crushed walnuts. Store the remaining cake in an air tight container. You can refrigerate it as well!

    Hello Neha: I am making the carrot cake now but the batter is very watery. Since you left out adding the flour in one of y our steps, I am wondering if the 1/2 cup is correct. Please help. Thanks Kay O'Brien

      Thank you for pointing that out Kay :) If the batter is watery, you could try adding another 1/2 cup.. if you still feel that it's not yet perfect, keep adding a tablespoon till you reach the right consistency. I'm so glad you're trying this recipe :)
