DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil 9x5 inch loaf pan with vegetable cooking spray.
  • Whisk together the egg whites, sugar, milk, applesauce, vanilla and almond extract in a small bowl; mix until well blended. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, whole wheat flour, flax seed, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and baking soda. Mix the egg mixture into the flour mixture; stir until well blended. Fold in walnuts, raisins, carrot and drained pineapple. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (but not necessarily dry), about 40 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in pan 15 minutes. Remove from pan. Cool completely. Wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • **The flax seed may be omitted. This cake is best served chilled because of the moist quality.
  • **If you don't want to separate the eggs or use Egg Beaters, you could use 2 whole eggs.
