    2-1/4 cups all purpose flour
    2 teaspoon baking soda
    2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 teaspoon allspice
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    3/4 cup light brown cane sugar
    3/4 cup cane sugar
    3 egg equivalent substitute
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    3/4 applesauce
    3 cups finely grated carrots
    1 can (about 14 oz) crushe'd pineapple, drained
    nuts and raisins optional

    Faux Cream Cheese Frosting:

    1 package vegan cream cheese
    1/3 cup vegan soy margarine, softened
    1 tsp. vanilla
    2 cups vegan confectioners sugar



Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, mix sugar and egg substitute until creamy (works best with an electric mixer) - add vanilla, then add vegetable oil and applesauce. Mix wet and dry ingredients together and add carrots and pineapple. Fold in raisins and nuts if desired.

I prefer a thicker cake, so I used a 9x9 glass pan. But if you prefer thinner cake with more servings, use a 13x9. Grease and flour pan. Smooth batter into pan. Bake for 40 - 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Be sure to let the cake adequately cool before frosting.

For the frosting: with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and margarine. Add vanilla, then add sugar. Frost the cooled cake as you like.

We ended up with at least 18 servings.
