Applesauce helps keep this yummy cake low-fat and moist. A dessert you can enjoy guilt-free!
Ingredients:
2 cups white flour
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
3 cups carrots, coarsely chopped
Directions:
1 In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
2 In a separate small bowl, combine the applesauce, oil and eggs. Add to the flour mixture, stirring until the ingredients are well blended. Add the carrots and mix again.
3 Pour the batter into a greased 9" tube pan, or use a 9" x 13" rectangular cake pan, or two bread loaf pans, or a cupcake pan.
4 Bake the cake in a preheated 350 deg. oven for about 1 hour, 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the thickest part of the cake comes out clean.
5 Set the cake on a wire rack for five minutes. Then, run a knife around the edges of the pan to loosen the cake, and turn the cake out onto the rack to cool. Cut into 16 pieces.
6 ENJOY!
