  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup grated carrots

  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 6 packets Sweet' N Low® zero calorie sweetener
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 8-inch square baking pan with nonstick coating agent.* In medium-size bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and Sweet 'N Low. In separate bowl, dissolve baking soda in Butter Buds or butter; add to dry ingredients. Stir in egg. Add carrots and raisins and mix thoroughly. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 3- minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool and cut into 2-inch squares.

By using Butter Buds instead of butter in this recipe, you have saved 47 calories and 18 mg cholesterol per serving.

*There's no need to spray with a nonstick coating agent if you own a nonstick 8-inch square baking pan.
