Carrot Cake (Gluten-Free)


Photo: CC/thebittenword

This is one recipe to keep in your recipe collection; especially if you love carrot cake as much as I do. The best thing about this recipe is that it is of course gluten-free, but also dairy-free. There is also an option for nut-free if you leave out the walnuts (adapted from Elana’s Pantry recipe).
