The beauty of this cake is that you get a delicious fig and nut flavor, but without a lot of added fat. The pureed figs replace the oil in this cake, giving you a moist cake minus the guilt.

  • 2 carrot, peeled and grated
  • 8 ounces crushed pineapple, drained with juice reserved
  • 1 cup seedless raisins
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, (optional for glaze)
