Bob’s Red Mill Whole Wheat Carrot Cake

By Shirleen

I discovered this awesome Whole Wheat Carrot Cake recipe several years ago, and since I was        looking  for ways to get more whole grains into my family’s diet, I gave it a try.  The results were amazing.  Everyone in my family loves it, as I do.  It is so moist and delicious.  This recipe makes a 9 x 9 inch one layer cake,  so double it if you need a two layer cake.

To save calories, I often leave part of the cake unfrosted.  The cake is fabulous with or without icing, and I personally don’t feel a need to have all that thick, gooey stuff on my cake.  Any unused portion of cake can be individually wrapped and enjoyed for a lunch snack or a weekend treat.  Leave me a post and let me know if you enjoy this cake as much as we do.
