Coconut Carrot Cake


I made this delightfully rich and fairly healthy vegan cake for Valentine's Day. Alone, the cake is not too sweet, but the coconut glaze with crystallized ginger kicks the sugar up a notch. My favorite thing about this cake is the heavenly marriage of flavor created by the cardamom and coconut; and a little cayenne pepper accents the spices even more.

What you will need

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

3/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda
