Carrot Cake:

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/4 Tsp Baking Powder

1 Tsp Baking Soda

1 1/4 Tsp Ground Cinnamon

1/2 Tsp Ground Nutmeg

1/8 Tsp Ground Cloves

1/2 Tsp Salt

1 Pound carrots (3 cups after juicing)

1 1/2 cups granulated White Sugar

1/2 cup Brown sugar

Ener G Egg Replacer for equivelent of 4 eggs (6 Tsp Ener G + 8 Tbsp water wisked in a separate bowl)

2/3 cup Canola oil

Preheat Oven to 350Degrees.  Using a Juicer, juice 1 pound of carrots. Set the juice and pulp aside. Line your cupcake tins for 24 cupcakes.  In a large bowl wisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt. In a standing mixer put your sugars and prewisked EnerG Egg replacer in and turn on Medium-medium high. Slowly and steadily pour in your oil continue mixing until emulsified and a little frothy. Then take your carrot pulp and slowly add it to your sugar/egg replacer bowl removing any solid chunks and stir in using a spoon spatula until well blended. Now pour that wet ingredient bowl into your dry ingredient bowl and mix until just blended (do not over mix as gluetens are forming). Using a cupcake scooper scoop out batter into each prelined cupcake baking tin.  Bake in oven on convection bake at 350 degrees for 16-20 mins. Check by inserting a toothpick into the center of the most center cupcake. If the toothpick comes out clean then its done. If you decide to add raisins then add a few more minutes to the baking time. Recipe really only makes about 18 cupcakes depending on how much you fill each one.
