So when Tom’s and my anniversary was coming up, I planned to make our traditional carrot cake. Our wedding cake was a carrot cake that we bought and decorated ourselves. Our theme was autumn leaves and Westies. <3

Every year, we have one whether it’s store-bought or homemade. Sometimes we may only get a slice but we try to keep this tradition. This seemed like a good time to try out some of Wholesome Chow’s mixes. I chose the Wholesome Chow Chai Spice Cake Mix as my base.

טרודי-באוויליקט!

 

Instead of plain non-dairy milk, איך געוויינט So Delicious Dairy Free Pumpkin Spice Coconut Milk. Then I added about one cup of fresh grated carrots and 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts. Mix and bake. No fussing with different flours, באַקינג פּודער, sugar or gums! Easy!

The cake baked up light, fluffy and tender. It looked beautiful!

Onto the frosting. Full disclosure: I do NOT like making frosting. I know it’s easy: powdered sugar, מילך, וואַניל. But mine never comes out thick enough. It never looks like the frosting I see in pictures. So I was excited to try Wholesome Chow’s Vanilla Frosting Mix.

Of course I had to make it my own so I started by creaming together V-פּוטער and vegan cream cheese. Then I added some maple syrup and extra vanilla (I like a strong vanilla taste). I added the frosting mix and TA-DA! I had a thick, creamy frosting that I had to put in the fridge before I just ate it all. It was sooo good. So good that I’m refusing to make another cake until I get more of Wholesome Chow’s frosting mixes (אָנצוהערעניש, אָנצוהערעניש). יאַפּ, that good!

The cake was incredibly moist. I think using the So Delicious Pumpkin Spice Milk added a lot of creamy goodness. The cake was light and full of flavor. The frosting was thick, creamy and held up so well (unlike my own). It was a delicious way to celebrate our anniversary. See my recipe below.

Whether you need a little help with baking or just want a mix that is not only easy but healthy and wholesome, Wholesome Chow Baking Mixes are the products for you! Now that I’ve tried a couple, I want to try them all! And I want Chef Veronica to teach me how to get my frosting so thick.

    keep trying to print recipes from your site, but instead of getting the recipe, I get a bunch of ads and comments…crap no-one would want to print, 6 pages long!. Anyone coming to this site is going to want to print an easily readable recipe with nothing else to use up precious, expensive ink. Can you please add a link for a printable recipe, בלויז? פּס. love the recipes, but trying to print this in an economically responsible way is making me grumpy!

      Hi Mindy, there is a print function for the newer recipes. It will take a long time to go back and do it for the old recipes but it’s there for all the new ones.
