Here is another tried and tested great recipe for sugar free low fat carrot cake

2 eggs or the equivilent in egg substitute
1 1/2 cups of shredded carrots
1/2 cup plain yogurt (vanilla works too if you want it a little sweeter)
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup sugar substitute (Splenda)
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1/2 cup raisins or walnuts (optional) I don't use either and it tastes just as good

Beat eggs, stir in carrots, yogurt applesauce and vanilla
In large bowl combine remaining ingredients, stir in carrot and egg mixture
Spread in a 9 inch square greased baking pan (PAM)
Bake at 325 for 35 - 40 minutes

100 cal per serving and probably less if you omit the raisens or walnuts

God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I can not change
The Courage to change the things I can and
The Wisdom to know the difference
