Here is one from "Baking Without Fat" (the very cookbook that Kelly Roddy, I
think it was, was giving away one day! Too bad I was at work and missed the
CARROT RAISIN CAKE
2 1/2 C +2TB whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 1/2 C honey (I think this could be cut in half)
1/3 C frozen pineapple juice concentrate, defrosted
2 tsp vanilla
2 egg whites, unbeaten (or egg replacer to equal)
1 1/2 C grated, peeled carrots
2 4 oz. jars carrot baby food puree
1 C raisins
2 egg whites, lightly beaten (or egg replacer to equal)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking
soda, cream of tartar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.
In medium bowl, mix honey, juice concentrate, vanilla, unbeaten egg white
mixture and carrots. Stir into flour mixture and mix until just blended.
Stir in raisins. Gently stir in lightly beaten egg white mixture. Do not
Spoon batter into two 9" round nonstick baking pans. Bake at 325 degrees
for 40-45 mins or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool on wire racks for
20-30 mins and remove from pans.
This is a delicious cake! Can be sprinkled with powdered sugar or frosted
with melted fruit preserves if you don't have a lowfat frosting recipe.
