Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Cooking spray
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large egg whites
1 large egg
2 cups finely shredded carrot
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Cream Cheese Frosting
2/3 cup tub-style light cream cheese, chilled
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Coat two 8-inch round cake pans with cooking spray, and dust pans with 1 tablespoon flour.

Lightly spoon 2 1/4 cups flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife.

Combine 2 1/4 cups flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and nutmeg in a medium bowl.

Combine granulated sugar and next 7 ingredients (granulated sugar through egg) in a large bowl; beat well at medium speed of a mixer.

Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Stir in carrot.

Pour cake batter into prepared pans. Sharply tap pans once on counter to remove air bubbles.

Bake for 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes on wire racks; remove from pans. Cool completely on wire racks.

Place 1 cake layer on a plate; spread with 2/3 cup Cream Cheese Frosting, and top with other cake layer. Spread remaining frosting over top and sides of cake.

Sprinkle walnuts over top of cake. Store cake loosely covered in refrigerator.

Cream Cheese Frosting: Beat cream cheese and vanilla extract in a large bowl at medium speed of a mixer until smooth. Gradually add sugar; beat at low speed until smooth (do not over-beat). Cover and chill. Yields 1 2/3 cups.
