When I was working more than full time, outside of the house, we used to buy Passover food. The kids were little and life was a lot more hectic and traveling every day zapped all my energy. I don’t remember the name of the place that we used, but I do remember having amazing carrot kugel. (Everything else was just OK.) I’m sure that their kugel was laden with eggs. I’ve tried to replicate the flavor here.

Passover Carrot Kugel
Depending on the size of your carrots, 5 or 6 carrots peeled and grated should do the trick. Feel free to add some raisins if you like them.
- carrots - 3 cups, grated
- apple sauce - 1 cup
- date honey - 1/2 cup
- oil - 1/2 cup
- matzo meal - 1 1/2 cups, finely ground
- baking powder - 1 tablespoon
- cinnamon - 1 teaspoon
- Mix all the ingredients together
- Oil a baking pan
- Pour into the baking pan
- Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes
Your recipes are lovely. It would help to include the size pan with instuctions (shape and/or number of cups). You do give timing and that depends on the pan size. It would also help if we chooose to use a different pan then we’d know how to adjust timing.
Specificaly want to make vegan carrot recipe and vegan apple cake
I totally have to do that. It’s going to take some time for me to get through all of the recipes on the site. For the carrot kugel, I use a 10″ bundt pan. For the apple cake, I used a 10″ square bake pan.
Can I use matzo cake meal?
matzo cake meal should work just fine. Let me know how it goes!
What can I use instead of date honey?
You can use brown sugar instead. You may need to add a bit more liquid. Either way, the batter should still pretty thick. Enjoy!
This sounds like a yummy recipe but the baking powder makes it absolutely not Kosher for Passover, when we eat unleavened foods only.
Baking powder is kosher for Pesach (it does need a specific Pesach kosher certification as opposed to baking soda which can be used on Pesach with a regular year round kosher certification). If you have any concerns you can always consult with your local Orthodox Rabbi.
The most strict Rabbinical authorities allow the use of baking powder. Manischewitz uses it in their cake mixes. In Israel, it has Kosher for Passover supervision from the Badatz. It is Kosher for Passover.
Baking Powder is Kosher for Passover. This is a great recipe.
Just to be sure….there are no eggs in this recipe? Chag sameach!
Hi Barbara! That’s correct – no eggs. It’s entirely vegan. Have a chag sameach too!
