I made this delightfully rich and fairly healthy vegan cake for Valentine's Day. Alone, the cake is not too sweet, but the coconut glaze with crystallized ginger kicks the sugar up a notch. My favorite thing about this cake is the heavenly marriage of flavor created by the cardamom and coconut; and a little cayenne pepper accents the spices even more. —SweetPotatoSoul

In This Recipe
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Oil a small non-stick bundt pan or a 9x4in loaf pan.
In a medium sized bowl mix and sift flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cardamom, cayenne, and salt; set aside.
In a large bowl mash a ripe banana, add coconut oil, carrot, coconut milk and egg replacer and mix thoroughly.
Begin to add dry ingredients to this wet mixture. Add a little at a time, stir, then add more until you have a thick batter.
Pour into the pan, and place in oven at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
Test to make sure it's done after 50 minutes by sticking a paring knife or toothpick into the cake, it should come out clean : )
