Servings: 0

Frost the cake with a dairy-free "cream-cheese" frosting or a simple glaze.



1. Combine the grated carrots and brown sugar in a medium bowl and set aside for an hour. After the two have had some good mingling time, stir in the raisins. 2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, and grease and flour two 10-inch cake pans, or three 8-inch cake pans, or two 8-inch cake pans + cupcake tins, or one bundt pan. 3. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and briefly set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, and gradually beat in the white sugar, oil and vanilla. Stir in the pineapple. Stir the flour mix into the wet mixture, being careful not to over mix. Gently fold in the carrot mixture and nuts. 4. Pour the batter evenly into your prepared pans. Bake as follows: 10-inch pans - 40 - 50 minutes, 8-inch pans - 30 - 35 minutes, Cupcakes - 20 - 22 minutes, bundt pan 60 minutes, or for all, until the cake(s) are springy to the touch and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. 5. Place the pans on a wire rack to cool for 10-20 minutes before removing from the pan. 6. Once the cake is completely cool, then you can frost it or drizzle with icing.
