Vegan Gluten Free Carrot cake cupcakes.

These are absolutely delicious and I adapted the recipe to make them gluten free, they are really moist and light and much too edible, I wanted to eat them all in one day, they lasted two! so do not ask me how well they keep as they do not last that long.


2/3 Cup Doves Farm Gluten free flour blend.

3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
3/4 Teaspoon gluten free Baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2/3 cup of unbleached cane sugar
1/3 cup Canola Oil
1/3 cup Alpro soya yoghurt, natural
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Cup grated carrots
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup of raisins.

to decorate :- vegan cream cheese frosting see below.

1/4 cup non dairy margerine

1/4 cup of vegan or Lacto Free cream cheese if not vegan.
2 cups of icing sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla

to make 12 cupcakes.


1 Preheat oven to gas mark 4 and line a cupcake tin with 12 liners

2 in a bowl mix sugar, canola oil, yoghurt, and vanilla.

3 sift in flour, baking soda baking powder, salt, ginger and cinnamon and mix until smooth.

4 Fold in carrots, walnuts and raisins.

5 fill the cup cakes liners about 2/3 full of mixture and bake for approximately 26-28 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the centre of one comes out clean.

6 cream together margerine and cheese in a clean bowl until just combined then using a hand held mixer whip the cream cheese and marg and slowly add the icing sugar in 1/2 cup batches mixing until creamy until all sugar is combined then add the vanilla and mix until smooth.
