baking spray with flour
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3/4 cup one-to-one sugar substitute
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon nonfat dry milk powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/2 cup canola oil
3/4 cup liquid egg substitute
1 large egg white
1 1/2 cups finely grated carrots
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
1/4 cup currants
1 6-ounce can unsweetened crushed pineapple, drained
frozen non-fat, sugar-free whipped topping, thawed (optional)
Preheat oven 350° F. Coat an 10 inch spring form pan with cooking spray.
Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add the sugar substitute, dry milk, baking
soda, baking powder, spices and salt. Stir to mix well.
Mix in the oil and egg substitute using a low setting on your electric mixer.
Fold in the carrots, walnuts, currants and pineapple.

of the cake pan and slice.
If using, top with thawed whipped topping.
