This carrot cake is so delicious and moist your family and friends will be surprised that it’s gluten free! It’s the perfect cake or cupcakes for your Easter celebration or anytime. It’s one of our favorites!

Vanilla Frosting - MamaShire

I use this Dairy-Free Vanilla Frosting on my carrot cake. If you don’t have to be dairy-free than use your favorite cream cheese frosting.

I use a food processor to make quick work of this cake. One of my most used kitchen appliances is my Cuisinart Food Processor. I’ve had several less expensive models over the years that couldn’t keep up, but this one is built to last and work hard and I work it hard. It’s on my list of must haves in the kitchen.
I’m sharing a different version of this recipe on Raising Homemakers using coconut sugar and maple syrup.

Trim Healthy Mamas this cake is a crossover!
