Categories: Cakes / Desserts / Low-Fat/Low-Cal

2 1/2  cups  whole wheat flour, plus 2 tablespoons
1 1/2  teaspoons  baking soda
1 1/2  teaspoons  cream of tartar
1 1/2  teaspoons  cinnamon
1/4  teaspoon  ground nutmeg
1 1/2  cups  honey, use half as much if desired
1/3  cup  pineapple juice, frozen concentrate, defrosted
2  teaspoons  vanilla
2    egg whites
1 1/2  cups  grated carrots
1  cup  raisins
2    egg whites, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside. In medium bowl, mix honey, juice concentrate, vanilla, unbeaten egg white mixture and carrots. Stir into flour mixture and mix until just blended. Stir in raisins. Gently stir in lightly beaten egg white mixture. Do not overmix! Spoon batter into two 9" round nonstick baking pans. Bake at 325 degrees for 40-45 mins or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool on wire racks for 20-30 mins and remove from pans.

This is a delicious cake! Can be sprinkled with powdered sugar or frosted with melted fruit preserves if you don't have a lowfat frosting recipe.
