Carrot Cake Loaf with Lime Coconut Frosting

Carrot cake is one of your all-time favourites on the blog so I decided to make a carrot cake loaf! Imagine a moist loaf filled with warming spices and covered in a tangy lime frosting. I use Coyo in my frosting as it is the creamiest coconut yoghurt that I’ve found on the market so far, which is prefect for this recipe. Why not treat your friends and family to afternoon tea with this delicious cake?
