Carrot Cake

Make with no added sugar and whole-grain flour, this bread is denser and chewier than classic carrot cake, but no less delicious. Skip the traditional frosting: as moist as this dish is, you don’t need it, and as it stands, this dish is nutritious enough to work as a mini-meal any day.

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups white whole-wheat flour
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 cup carrot, shredded
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp. vinegar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray an 8 inch cake pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and spices.
  3. In a separate bowl, stir together remaining ingredients except for walnuts.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and combine thoroughly. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, then fold in walnuts.
  5. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
