This is a yummy carrot cake with rich cream cheese frosting. It tastes very much like the non-vegan version. I believe I came across this recipe on a vegetarian recipe board.

I loved this recipe! I substituted the applesauce for crushed pineapple and I added extra cinnamon. I also added a little nutmeg and cloves. Everyone raved about it, they couldn't believe it was vegan. Thank you!

Best carrot cake ever. I don't normally like to use Ener-G but it was definitely worth it in this. I can't get tofutti cream cheese where I live so I used the buttercream frosting recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World and it complemented the cake very well.

Really REALLY good! I used 1/2 cup brown sugar and cut the regular sugar down to 1/4 cup. The only change I will make next time is in the frosting. 1 1/2 cups sugar was too sweet but that is just personal preference.
