Reduced Fat Carrot Cake

Nor M.


This is a reduced fat version of the high fat Carrot cake we are accustomed to making. It comes from a cook book called Home style cooking. It is not fat free. It has 13 grams of fat per slice. The average Carrot cake contains 25 grams of fat. That is almost half the fat. It is also really tasty. Enjoy all!!
