i have a great carrot cake recipe' that i was going to give to my husbands Aunt Beth. i told her what was in it and she said "that sounds good, but i'll use 'real food' in it." (?!!?!!???!!?!?!)
i said " if you change the recipe' it wont taste the same.. you should probably make it the way i have it so it comes out right." she put her hand up and said "oh no, i don't want vegan. i want people to like it."
what the heck?! i didn't end up giving it to her. if she wanted to add juice from a tortured animal, she could go find her own freaking recipe'.

This is best illustrated by the phenomenon that freshly baked vegan carrot cake cupcakes with Tofutti cream cheese frosting are too gross to even taste, however, boxed cake mix carrot cake topped with accidentally vegan, chemical filled, cream cheese frosting is super delicious.

Also sad how so many people still don't realise how much crepe there is in their food... It's just crazy that in this society if you want to do something for your health and/or the environment, you're seen as radical or exaggerating and also as depriving yourself of things.

So stupid. Even if you take the ethics out of it, why would you want to change a recipe that has a PERFECT result?

Give me the recipe instead. I won't change a damn thing.

If it makes you feel any better, your post now makes me want carrot cake.

Aw, that's funny and sad at the same time. I once gave someone a vegan cupcake recipe and they decided to "improve" it by adding egg. D'oh!

I'm with Chicki. Send that recipe our way!

HERE IT IS!!! hope you guys like it!! its revised to my liking from another recipe'
‘What’s Up Doc??’
Carrot Cake

Ingredients:
2 1/3 Cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1½ tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. nutmeg
½ tsp. salt
6 TBS. flax seed meal
3/4 Cup warm water
1½ Cups sugar
1 Cup Grape seed oil
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Cups shredded carrots
2 Cups pecans/walnuts, chopped
½-1 Cup crushed cookies(or Isa's recipe for garahm crackers. i made this change recently:)

Icing/filling
2-3 CANS Coconut milk (depends on how much filling/icing you want. set in fridge overnight)
Raw sugar (or whatever you prefer)
Spices as desired (I used a little Nutmeg, Cinnamon and a pinch of ground cloves)
Instructions:
1. Oven at 350º. (I do this after step 7. preheating never works out for me:/)
2. Grease two cake pans (or line with parchment paper)
3. In a small bowl, sift together dry ingredients (flour through salt)
4. In a large bowl, whisk together flax seed meal and water. Beat in sugar and oil
5. Add vanilla and carrots, combine
6. combine the dry ingredients with the wet.
7. Fold in half of the nuts
8. Pour equal parts into pans
9. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean
10. Let cool in pans for 10 minutes
11. Use a knife to loosen edges of cake from pans
12. Flip out of pans. Let cool fully on wire racks
13. for the whipped coconut filling, scoop out stiffened coconut from the can, leaving about a quarter of the water at the bottom. With a hand mixer, blend the cream and sugar (as much sugar as desired). Add some pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon or whatever spices you want! Decorate with cookies and remaining nuts.

I will be saving this for the next time I need cake. Looks like a great recipe. Thank you! I will not fork it up with non-vegan shiitake.

I dreamed about this thread and there were sprouts on top of the cake and no icing....so I was like "of course they don't want vegan. You're making us look all like freaks!"

Your version looks much better than my nightmare.

That sounds like a mess I'm willing to make (and eat)!

That makes me nuts! Vegan food is real food. My omni sweetheart even specifies things like "cow milk" in addition to the way most omnis specify "almond milk" or "soy milk" when talking to people these days. Did she think you made it with paper mâché and brick dust? That would not be real food.

Does anyone know a nice carrot cake icing recipe other than the one above (making carrot cake for my boyfriend, who is not fond of coconut) and also not containing cream cheese? I tried this icing, which I thought sounded good, but didn't like it.

Recently I posted the Food for Lovers vegan superbowl thing on Facebook. I thought of this thread when a family friend commented that she found the concept of vegan junk food "depressing" - and then backtracked by saying my homemade junk food (cupcakes, cookies, whatever) is real food, implying that store bought stuff isn't, I guess? People sure have weird food rules.

I have a friend that insists that vegan food is 'FAKE' food. He actually uses that word.

Ok. My banana is fake. You got me. It's make from islolated soy protein.

(this guy is a real joker though, so he might be messing with me)

I've had success with just a regular vanilla butter cream, just with a higher marg. to shortening ratio than normal. Then add in a teeny pinch of salt and a dash of lemon (for that acidic taste) and it works well enough.
