I made this "my way" but still credit the author for the submission and idea. I used 3 cups carrots and 1 cup granny smith apple. I did not have any nutmeg, so I used allspice instead ,plus, I added 1 tbs. ginger along with the listed spices. I used splenda, instead of sugar. 1 cup only. In place of two whole eggs, I used one egg and two egg whites. 1/4 cup smart balance omega light, buttery spread (this only has 40 calories per tbls) and another 1/4 cup oil to make up the half cup oil called for. I toasted my walnuts in my toaster oven. This gives it a more robust flavor, I think. I put all my wet ingredients in the bowl first, fruit veggies and all, then added the flour, spices, etc. I lined the bottom of the baking dish with pineapple rings that are not sweetened, then poured a little of the pineapple juice in the batter to moisten it better. Placed batter on top of pineapple and baked for 40 minutes at 325. Let cool then made cream cheese frosting with fat-free cream cheese, splenda, fat and sugar free cool whip, vanilla extract.. then ate...yum, yum !!This is so rich tasting, no one would ever guess that I had made these substitutions from the taste! My hubbie loved this cake!
