Dried apricots are not as tasty as many other dried fruits and it is best to include it in something sweet to obtain the full benefits of the vitamin A it contains. This is a delicious whole wheat cake with the added flavor of carrots. Vegans may substitute soy yogurt for regular yogurt.

Preparation time: 20 minutes for mixing and about 1 hour to bake.


whole wheat pastry flour- 3 cup (regular whole wheat flour works well too)

raw sugar- 1 1/2 cup

finely chopped dried apricots- 1 cup

grated carrots- 1 to 1 1/2 cup

cinnamon powder- 1 tsp.

baking powder- 2 tsp.

baking soda- 1 tsp.

salt- 1/2 tsp.

canola oil- 1 cup

orange juice- 1 1/2 cup

yogurt- 2 tbsp.


* Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Mix wet ingredients in a bowl.

* Combine dry ingredients in another bowl.

* Add the dry mixture to the wet. Add apricots and stir in the carrots.

* Transfer to a greased 2.2 qt rectangular baking dish.

* Bake at 350 F for 1 hr or till a clean knife inserted in the center comes out clean. With increased amount of carrots, add another 5-8 minutes for completion.




For this amount of batter I got 3 cupcakes in addition to the rectangular cake. It is recommended not to fill a baking dish more than half of its volume.
