Carrot Sheet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Moist, rich, and lightly spiced, this carrot cake received our Test Kitchens' highest rating. We call for a metal baking pan for the cake; if you use a glass baking dish, which conducts heat better than metal, decrease the baking temperature to 325°, and begin checking for doneness after 25 minutes. For the best frosting consistency, use softened butter and cold cream cheese, and add the powdered sugar in batches.


Cake:
Cooking spray
9 tablespoons butter, softened margarine
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs use egg beaters
2 large egg whites
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk I might use buttermilk but I recommend soy milk with a tiny bit of vinegar
2 cups finely shredded carrot

Frosting:
1/2 cup (4 ounces) block-style fat-free cream cheese use soy cream cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened margarine
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 3/4 cups powdered sugar, divided
1 tablespoon orange sugar sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350°.
To prepare cake, coat a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray; line bottom of pan with wax paper. Coat wax paper with cooking spray; set aside.

Place 9 tablespoons butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed 5 minutes or until well blended. Add eggs and egg whites, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition until pale and fluffy. Beat in 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon salt, stirring with a whisk. Add flour mixture and buttermilk alternately to sugar mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture; mix after each addition. Stir in carrot. Spoon batter into prepared pan. Sharply tap pan once on counter to remove air bubbles. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pan. Carefully peel off wax paper; cool completely on wire rack.

To prepare frosting, place the cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, 2 teaspoons of vanilla, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Gradually add 2 cups powdered sugar, beating at low speed until smooth (do not overbeat). Stir in the remaining 3/4 cup powdered sugar. Cover and chill 30 minutes. Spread frosting over top of cake. Garnish with sprinkles. Store cake loosely covered in refrigerator.

Red Velvet Cake with Buttercream Frosting

This classic cake is hard to resist. The striking color combination makes it ideal for Christmas and Valentine's Day, as well as for birthdays. A thick, cooked mixture of flour and milk extends the frosting while keeping the fat at a reasonable amount.

1/3 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup egg substitute
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
1 (1-ounce) bottle red food coloring
2 cups cake flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup low-fat buttermilk same as above
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 cup fat-free milk soy or rice
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter, softened margarine
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350°.
To prepare cake, coat 2 (8-inch) round cake pans with cooking spray; line bottoms of pans with wax paper. Coat wax paper with cooking spray; set pans aside.

Place granulated sugar and shortening in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed 5 minutes or until well blended. Add egg substitute; beat well. Combine cocoa and food coloring in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk; add to sugar mixture, stirring well to combine.

Lightly spoon the cake flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine cake flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt, stirring with a whisk.

--------------------
IBS-A for 20 years with terrible bloating and gas. On the diet since April 2004. Remember this from Heather's information pages:
"You absolutely must eat insoluble fiber foods, and as much as safely possible, but within the IBS dietary guidelines. Treat insoluble fiber foods with suitable caution, and you'll be able to enjoy a wide variety of them, in very healthy quantities, without problem." Please eat IF foods!
