Gluten Free Carrot Cake | Rachelle, Footloose And Gluten Free

This gluten free carrot cake is light and moist with a nice spice flavor perfect for any event.  You can frost it or leave it plain, it's yummy either way!

I thought with Mother’s Day being right around the corner that a Gluten free Carrot Cake was a very good option, this cake is light and moist with a nice spice flavor perfect for any event.  You can frost the cake or just leave it plain either way it is just as good.  My husband is not a carrot cake fan at all and when I told him that I was making the cake he was a little disappointed but kept commenting how good the house smelled.  Finally when the cake was done, cooled, and photographed I offered him a piece to try and he reluctantly tried a piece, needless to say he LOVED it and you will too.
