Vegan carrot cake with yogurt frosting

It's strange that we needed almost two years, to show you a recipe for vegan carrot cake. Cause at Easter we normally bake three cakes at one go, haha. And you should propably do the same! For this recipe we used a square baking pan, but a round one will work, too. So let's enjoy this juicy and aromatic vegan cake!
