Thanks to 1Steve for refering me to this as per my request for a diabetic-safe carrot cake to make my Baci (grandmother in Polish) for her birthday. She enjoyed it, but did note that she tasted allspice (she's not a fan). I didn't taste the cake, so I can't vouch for it. I did adapt this recipe to make it healthier and more diabetic friendly. Because of the lacking sugars, I suggest checking on the cake before 40 minutes are up. I frosted with my Mock cream Cheese Frosting. Here's a link to the original:

I made this for my diabetic Mother-In-Law's Birthday. The entire family RAVED about how wonderful this was. I was nervous since I never made anything 'diabetic' before, but they've never complimented me as much on other cakes as they did this one. I did not have any egg substitute, so I put in 3 egg whites with 1 yolk. Instead of applesauce, I cut up fresh apples & put them in a blender, using about 9-10 tablespoons. And I used less than 1/4 cup of Splenda. I put it in a bundt pan and it made a very small cake, but it was extremely moist and very delicious. And it does not need any icing. It's perfect. I will definitely make this one again and again. Thanks for posting this.
