Vegan carrot cake from Vegan Divas in NYC

A few weeks ago  I wrote about how bakers and pastry chefs can create great tasting vegan desserts with a little effort.   Case in point is the simple, not-too-heavy carrot cake from Vegan Divas.  

This cake is a refreshing departure from the toothpaste-thick, cream-cheese-based frosting you often see on a carrot cake–even on some of the nicer ones in NYC.  The frosting wasn’t too sweet either.  [Full disclosure, I'm not a huge carrot cake fan due to a slight allergy to wallnuts and pecans.]  However, the group I was sharing this cake with really liked the flavor and spice profile.

Also from Vegan Divas a great alternative to deep-fried cake-style donuts

Carrot cake slices are now available at Garden of Eden markets and Butterfield Market.  See below for more info.
