Vegan Carrot Cake Recipe Reviews - (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
Like the other reviewer, this was way too sweet. 1 cup of brown sugar was perfectly fine, even for sweet-tooth kids. Also too much baking soda - we got an aftertaste. Will try half the soda and 2 tsp baking powder instead like my other cakes - there's no acidity in the recipe so I don't know why the soda's there! Also, 1 tbsp of cloves is entirely too much, maybe 1 tsp? I substituted the soy flour for an equal amount of ground hazelnuts and left out the almonds, currants and tapioca starch. The consistency is a good one though.

The consistency was perfect. The recipe needs some work. The cloves left the mouth burning. The recipe is missing fat and you can tell by the taste. Thus it does not satisfy your want for cake. Fat free does not equal healthy. The recipe has too much sugar. I added half the sugar and it was at a perfect sweetness for my taste. That was all that I changed. I will not make this recipe again.
