Corey's Amazingly Vegan Carrot Cake

What you need: 

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup unrefined vegan cane sugar
1/4 cup dark amber maple syrup
1/4 cup canola oil
1-1 1/2 cups plain nondairy milk (I use soy)
equivalent of 4 eggs (I use Ener-G egg replacer)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 good sized carrots, grated
1/4-1 cup raisins, to taste
nuts, chopped, optional

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350'F. Grease 2 (8x8") round cake pans, 1 (13x9"), or cupcake tins. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. You can sift if you prefer, but it's not essential.
2. Mix wet ingredients in a smaller bowl, excluding raisins and carrots. Add wets to dries, and mix in carrots and raisins well, if you would like to add nuts, this would be the time to do so.
3. Pour the batter into prepared pan(s), and bake for 30-35 minutes (for 8x8" pans). It is done when an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
4. Keep in mind all ovens run different, so yours may take shorter or longer, check on it about half way through. Let cool before serving/frosting.
Great with vegan cream cheese icing!

I just made the cake. The flavors were good but for whatever reason it came out kind of mushy. I thought it probably needed to cook for longer so I put it back in the oven for another 10 minutes but it still came out with a kind of uncooked/mushy center. I used my food processor to mix the ingredients and also used stevia in place of sugar, but aside from that I followed the recipe exactly. I'll try it again without the food processor and organic sugar and see how it turns out.

When using the Ener-g egg replacer, do you mix it with water like the box says?

This turned out very moist and yummy. It was a big hit. Instead of raisins, I added a small can of crushed pineapple, and some shredded coconut.
I recommend this recipe! : )
