With spring weather FINALLY making an appearance I’m feeling excited to share some more spring-inspired recipes.

I wanted to share a carrot cake recipe that has a little more a tropical twist. Though it’s barely tropical weather here in Montreal, (I wish) tropical flavours seem to feel more welcomed as soon as the weather warms up, regardless where you live.

I love a good carrot cake recipe. So I’m excited to share this vegan aloha carrot cake loaf recipe today! The “Aloha” in this recipe represents the coconut and pineapple flavour combination added to the loaf, which gives it a little bit of a tropical feel.

This loaf is completely vegan and requires no eggs (and no flax eggs either) to make. While I often do use eggs in my baking, it’s nice to create some recipes that are 100% naturally vegan to share. I know I get requests sometimes asking about egg substitutes in some of my recipes, so for this one, there are no substitutions needed!

One thing to note about this recipe is to make sure to bake the loaf for long enough. I find sometimes egg-less baking recipes can be a little softer and wet in the middle, so it’s important to give the loaf enough time to really cook all the way through. For my oven, this was about 50 minutes, but it can vary from oven to oven. The crust should be well browned and crispy on the outside when it’s done.

This vegan aloha carrot cake loaf is great enjoyed on its own or with a drizzle of maple syrup. You can also mix in some of your favourite nuts (I recommend walnuts) or raisins into this loaf.
