Whole Wheat Carrot-Pineapple Cake

What you need: 

nonstick spray
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt, optional
2/3 cup applesauce
2 egg substitutes (http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=7678.0) (I use Ener-G Egg Replacer)
1 cup carrot, finely shredded
1/2 cup juice packed pineapple (with juice)
1 teaspoon vanilla

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 8-9" square pan. In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients.
2. Make a well in the center and add in remaining ingredients. Mix well (use an electic mixer if you want your cake especially light).
3. Bake 30-35 minutes or until toothpick-test done.
I didn't use a frosting-it was very moist and yummy without. If you must, you could mix vanilla, powdered vegan sugar and frost with that.'

I just made this and it was SUPER MOIST and not very carrot-y.  :-\ I would suggest adding more carrot and flour (and perhaps what they mean by pineapple is crushed pineapple, because the chunks and juice don't really work out too fabulously). Anyway, if you like sweet bread with a touch of carrot flavour then I suppose this recipe is for you, but if you like a hearty carrot cake I'd suggest looking elsewhere.

I would agree, I just made this cake and it turned out supper moist, but very yummy. I added a mixture of flax seeds, and corn starch in replace of the eggs. I added a little soy milk to the mixture and blended it in to the cake mix. I also used more carrot and 2 cups of flour instead of 1.5. Worked out very nicely. I added raisins, nuts and nutmeg to this recipe also. Very hearty, great cake!
