Carrot Cake

Bunnies love carrots, but you’ll love this lite version of carrot cake. You’ll need:

* 1 cup cake flour
* 1 cup whole wheat flour
* 1 cup packed brown sugar
* 1/2 cup white sugar
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
* 3 eggs
* 1/3 cup vegetable oil
* 2/3 cup buttermilk
* 1 1/2 cups grated carrots

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9-inch by 13-inch pan or two 9-inch round cake pans. Separate the eggs and then beat the whites until frothy. While whipping the egg whites, add 1/2 of the white sugar. Continue beating until stiff peaks are formed.

Combine both types of flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add the oil and butter milk, being sure to mix well. Add the egg yolks and continue mixing. Fold in the egg whites, being careful not to flatten the mixture, and then add the carrots. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pans. Bake the cake for 25 to 35 minutes. Once it is cool, frost the cake using your favorite cream cheese frosting. Read more
