Brer Rabbit Carrot Cake

Brer Rabbit Carrot Cake created by ladypit

This is another recipe from Eating for IBS by Heather Van Vorous. It's posted in response to a request for low-fat carrot cakes. I haven't tried it myself, but have heard rave reviews about it from others. The sweet orange icing looks like a great touch, although I'm sure it would be great without it or with your own choice of icings, too.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Spray a 10-inch non-stick bundt pan with cooking oil and set aside.
  • Sift the first 7 ingredients (flour to granulated sugar) into a large bowl and stir well to combine.
  • In a separate large bowl, beat next 7 ingredients (brown sugar to pineapple) with an electric mixer until well combined.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry with just a few swift strokes by hand; do not over-beat or the cake will be tough.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 45-55 minutes, until toothpick or cake tester inserted into center comes out clean.
  • Cool on rack (in pan) for 10 minutes, then invert onto rack and cool to room temperature.
  • Top with Sweet Orange Icing (or another icing of your choice).
  • To make Sweet Orange Icing: Combine all icing ingredients and blend with a fork until smooth.
  • Use immediately to top cake (if icing sits it will harden).

    My goodness it is very good! Moist and sweet enough on it's own that is doesn't need any icing. I substituted unsweetened apple sauce for the pineapple, added walnuts for crunch and baked it in an 8X8 pan. With so many changes I won't give it 5 stars.

    Oh my gosh !!!! Another one of Heather's recipes I been meaning to try. This is a wonderful cake. Mine turned out REAL moist. I used 2 cups carrots and I didnt have orange zest so I had to omit that. I had mine with no icing at all next time I will make the sweet orange icing. Dh had cream cheese icing on his and he loved it. Thanks Kree/Heather :)
