Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 375F degrees.

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients (sugar, flours, baking soda and powder, and spices). Add egg whites, milk, applesauce, vanilla and boiling water. Beat with electric mixer at high speed for 2 mintues. Fold in shredded carrots.

Spray 9x13 inch baking pan with nonstick pan spray. Pour bater into pan and bake 35-40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on rack before frosting.

For frosting, combine cream cheese, margarine, vanilla and powdered sugar in a medium bowl. Beat with electric mixer until smooth. Add milk only if frosting appears too thick. Frost cake and sprinkle with walnuts immediately. Otherwise, frosting will set and nuts won't stick.
