Healthier Version of Carrot Cake
12/15/2009 5:14:01 AM

This is a healthier version of the calorie-laden regular carrot cake. It makes an 8 inch square pan of cake.

Ingredients:

2 cups finely grated carrots

juice of 1 large orange

2 teaspoons vanilla

1/4 cup olive oil

1 cup honey, liquefied in microwave (30 seconds)

1/2 cup crushed or chopped pineapple, drained

1 cup unbleached white flour

1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

3/4 cup walnuts, chopped

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350.

In a mixing bowl, stir together the carrots, orange juice, vanilla, olive oil, honey and pineapple until blended.

In separate bowl, stir together the flours, baking soda, and spices. Mix in the walnuts.

Blend the dry ingredients into the carrot mixture, stirring just until mixed.

Pour the batter into a nonstick 8 inch square baking pan. Bake for 45-60 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven, let cool slightly, and remove from pan.

I love carrot cake. Have you eaten this cake Donna?? LOL... can you "vouch" for it? If you can, I'll make it for my Christmas party. The family is coming over Friday night.

Thanks,

Pat

Hi Donna,

Sounds deliciious. If you would like some really good coffee to go with it, click the Carrot Cake below to go to Jelks Gourmet Coffees.

They don't have an Affiliate program, unfortunately, but they do have some Carrot Cake Flavored Coffee, along with some of the best Cajun and Creole mixes I've ever found.

May the grace of Our Mighty Father be with you all during Christmas.

Have a blessed Christmas and a happy New Year.

God Loves You.

Phil
