Vegan Carrot Bundt Cake

Carrot cake is tradition around Spring in my family and I always loved making it with my mom, although she would always ask me to grate the carrots (haha). This recipe is the plant-based version of my childhood recipe. It’s super fluffy, perfectly moist and the velvety coconut frosting just give it that extra creaminess.
