Moist apple carrot maple cake is topped with a tangy and sweet maple cream cheese frosting!
Heat the oven to 350 F and spray a 12-cup muffin pan, or 8″ square pan, with non-stick spray.
In a small bowl, combine the sugar, brown sugar, butter, and maple syrup until well blended. Add the buttermilk, egg, and applesauce and mix well. Set aside.
In a large bowl, add both the flours, the spices, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Whisk to combine.
Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and whisk until just combined. Add the shredded carrots and apples and fold in until evenly distributed and no dry flour remains.
Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes for the muffins, 30 to 40 minutes for the 8″ square cake, or until the cake springs back when pressed in the center and begins to pull away from the sides of the pan. Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
While the cake cools, prepare the frosting. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and butter. Whisk until well combined.
Add the powdered sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla and whisk until smooth.
Frost the cake and enjoy!
This deliciously fluffy, vegan cake is perfect for using Thanksgiving leftovers. Aside from the cranberry sauce and chocolate chips, it’s almost entirely sweetened with fruit—truly healthy enough for breakfast! If you haven’t tried baking with date paste yet, this is a great recipe to start with!
