Cake - eggless carrot
Preparation time: 20 minutes Cooking time: 40 minutes
Serves: 12

Ingredients:
1 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
1/2 cup self-raising flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1/4 cup sultanas
2 large carrots, grated
1/2 cup warm water
1/4 cup canola oil
2 teaspoons white vinegar

Icing:
1 cup icing sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Method:
1. Lightly spray a 19cm square cake tin with oil spray; line base with non-stick baking paper.
2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Spread into tin.
3. Bake in a moderate oven (180°C) for 35 to 40 minutes or until cooked when tested.
4. Stand for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire cake rack to cool.

Icing:
Sift icing sugar mixture into a small bowl, stir in enough juice to give a smooth spreading consistency. Spread icing over the top of the cake.

Notes: For special occasions you can decorate the cake with a glace carrot. To do this cut a small carrot into thin strip. Combine 1/4 cup water with 1/2 cup sugar in a small pan, stir over heat, without boiling, until sugar is dissolved. Add carrot, simmer 5 minutes, remove and cool. Decorate cake with glace carrot and sprig of mint. Serve together with wedges of fresh orange.

Found that on the net for you. Give it a go:)

or you could try replacing the egg with apple sauce (not chunky, but smooth.)
