Carrot-Ginger Snack Cake

Carrot-Ginger Snack Cake

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ginger
2 large eggs
1/2 cup applesauce (unsweetened)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups shredded peeled carrots
3/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup chopped crystallized ginger

Preheat oven to 350

In a large bowl, whisk together flours, sugars, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger until well combined.

In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, applesauce and vanilla. Pour mixture into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Add in the carrots, raisins and crystallized ginger - stirring to evenly distribute them.

Pour batter into a 9x13" baking dish coated with nonstick spray. Bake until the center springs back when lightly touched, or a toothpick placed in the center comes out mostly clean - a few moist crumbs attached is okay. Remove and let cool on a wire rack before cutting.
