Carrot Cake vegan and organic

Carrot cake always reminds me of my mum. She loved it. I learnt to make a really yummy one when I was living in England and it became my speciality cake. Mum always wanted me to bake her a carrot cake for her birthday and mother’s day. So in honour of mother’s day, I have made her own with the kids today, which is another way I am keeping her memory alive. This one is that bit less dense than my original and is super healthy packed with all the right superfoods. It is vegan and organic and most importantly the kids love it! So a great way to get some healthy foods into them when they think they are having a treat!
