While traditional carrot cake recipes are usually very high in fat and calories, our carrot cake recipe has about 40% less calories and 50% less fat than other traditional recipes. This healthier alternative uses less oil and doesn’t call for butter in the frosting – but don’t worry, this carrot cake is anything but plain!
