Thanks for the recipe! I just did a half batch as muffins, with a few minor tweaks (all whole wheat flour, almonds instead of walnuts, 1/2 c maple syrup instead of brown sugar, and 1/4 tsp of ground cloves) and they turned out really good. I got a total of 14 muffins (1/4 cup of batter for each). Submitted by:

Great recipe! I used it for an Easter Bunny Cake. It's just the right amount for a spring form and the cake rose in the middle so I got a nice plump bunny out of it.

I used 3 whole eggs instead of the egg whites. This would increase the calories but i didn't know what to do with 6 egg yolks.

I used only wheat flour, used less nutmeg and added pumpkin spice. (Also made fat free cream cheese frosting for it hehe) I thought the cake was pretty moist, not too dense at all. Not a ton of flavor, but definitely pretty good!! =) Submitted by:

Love it! Thanks for the recipe. My husbands favorite cake is carrot cake and I never make it because it is so high in fat. We loved this. The only thing I didn't add was the walnuts because I didn't have any, but I will add them next time. Submitted by:

I made it with splenda brown sugar and it was delicious.
Nice to be able to eat a dessert once in a while that's more healthy.

Mmmm...I'm just sitting down to eat this delicious cake with a dusting of powdered sugar. I made mine in a lasagna pan and ended up with about 21 pieces. Mine was not tough at all...All the kids gobbled it up! Submitted by:

Liked it. Smelled fantastic! Didn't have any nutmeg or whole wheat flour, but turned out fine without them. Smelled more flavorful than it tasted, but I'm not an experienced enough cook to say what it might have needed to better suit my liking. The 6-year-old liked dipping the pieces in sugar :) Submitted by:

This was really good and the fact it is so low in fat made it even better! I didn't have wheat flour and didn't use raisins (kids don't like). I swapped 3/4 cup flour for ground flaxseed and used homemade cream cheese frosting on it while still warm to melt into a thin layer. Yum! Submitted by:

This was a good! Be careful not to overmix or overcook; we did a little of both and the cake is a litle tough. I'm not a big carrot cake fan, but I liked this one because it was not too sweet. I added cream cheese frosting, but I don't feel bad because the cake doesn't have too many calories. Submitted by:

Very good! NOTE: I Used splenda in place of sugar, egg white substitute, and skim milk in place of 1%. Came out very moist. Calculated at 102.9 cal and 1.5 g fat each, using healthier substitutes came to higher fat content than yours. Hmmm... Submitted by:
