Low FODMAP Carrot Cake

My dad’s favorite treat is carrot cake, and I make it for him every year for Father’s Day in June and his birthday in October. This Father’s Day, I made it for him the way he likes it- gluten and dairy included! I couldn’t enjoy it with him, so I suddenly had a new recipe to test… low FODMAP carrot cake! It’s delicious, moist, and sweet. I used vegan cream cheese from Trader Joe’s in the frosting, and it’s just as good as dairy. I hope you enjoy this cake as much as I do!
