Lowfat Carrot Cake from Boxed MixSubmitted by: YARNMAGICIAN
IntroductionThis starts with a Betty Crocker cake mix, but I used applesauce and egg whites in place of oil and whole eggs to cut the fat and calories. Not a health food, just a healthier carrot cake variation. Makes a light and sweet cake.

This was DELICIOUS! I made it exactly as you stated to, and they turned out so moist and soft. I did add raisins to the last batch of muffins, and that really added a little something extra. Even my KIDS loved these! Great GREAT Recipe! Thank you! I think I might try it on some other cake mixes too! - 1/25/09
This was for a birthday party. I even used low fat cream cheese for the homemade frosting. Delish! I don't even want to tell anyone it's low fat. I did fresh carrot juice in place of water and the carrot grounds and walnuts in the cake. Awesomely moist!!! I might use banana not egg. (1/2nanner=1egg) - 4/16/11
