This cake is full of shredded carrot, fruit, and spices. It isn’t fancy, but absolutely delicious. The cake itself is dairy free, but if you do indulge in dairy this cake is incredible with cream cheese frosting. Instead of canned pineapple you can use about ¼ cup of applesauce ¼ cup shredded apple as a replacement.

1 Cup White or Whole Wheat Flour
