Vegan Carrot Cake Dessert Recipe (Gluten Free)

There is something very comforting about eating a nice slice of carrot cake and there is something so indulgent about eating a piece of my carrot cake dessert.

This is not only a vegan dessert recipe it is also s gluten free dessert recipe and an eggless dessert recipe.

I use a small blend of sweet spices with fresh grated carrots and mandarins to produce a moist cake base that I top with my thick and creamy vegan whipped cream.

Dusted off with a little cinnamon powder these look fantastic and taste even better.

If you can not get the mandarins then clementines with work instead.

My vegan and gluten free carrot cake dessert recipe contains no eggs, butter, milk, wheat or gluten.

Taste this tantalizing sweet recipe for yourself and say mmmmmmmm.

I have a friend who LOVES carrot cake. This would be a fabulous birthday cake for her. I love that you didn't fully cover the cake with the cream so you can still see how beautiful the cake is. Nice work!
