They are the perfect texture; moist with the crunch of the pecans and the chewiness of the sultanas! And the cream cheese topping is thick and sweet – delicious!Β  And you easily can make them gluten free by using gluten free self raising flour.

Super quick and easy to make, these will be ready in 20 minutes from start to finish.

I used a mini loaf tin for these vegan carrot cakes and it worked perfectly and they look so cute!
