Carrot Cake with Pineapple Cream Cheese Frosting

This cake is incredibly moist and lightly spiced, but the pineapple frosting really brings it over the top! This is a real crowd pleaser and would work great as cupcakes! I use my own cashew sour cream/cream cheese, which I think is healthier than store-bought vegan ones.

For the cake:

Pre-heat your oven to 350 F. Mix your dry ingredients in a bowl and you wet ingredients in another bowl. Poor your dry into your wet and stir just until combined.  Poor into two oiled cake pans or 4 small ones and bake for 30- 45 mins (depending on the size of the cakes). Cool cakes completely on a wire wrack and frost with icing!

This icing recipe is incredible!

Blend the dried pineapple in the blender, adding just enough juice until it is a thick paste. Process the paste in the food processor with the cashew sour cream and vanilla. Taste and add date paste if needed.
