Was trying to figure out what to do with leftover cream cheese frosting – and thought hmm there has to be a small carrot cake recipe someplace….and found one – and it smells and looks amazing!!!!  So for those of you that want a small desert or a lighter desert – give it a try….


Carrot Snack Cake

1/4 c margarine, softened
1/2 c sugar
1 egg
1/4 c skim milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c finely shredded carrot
1 c all-purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
dash ground nutmeg

In a small mixer bowl beat margarine and sugar till blended. Beat in egg, milk and vanilla. Stir in carrot.
In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. Add to carrot mixture and stir till blended.
Spray an 8×8 baking pan with nonstick spray. Pour batter evenly into pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 min or until toothpick near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
Sprinkle sifted powdered sugar lightly over the top to decorate, serve.

I also added some pecans to mine…just an idea
