In a mixing bowl beat margarine and sugar until blended. Beat in egg, milk, and vanilla. Stir in carrot. In another bowl combine flour, powder, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Add carrot mixture and stir until blended. Spray an 8x8x2" baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Pour batter evenly into pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Cool in the baking tin on wire rack for ten minutes, then remove from the tin and cool completely. Place a paper doily on the top of the cake. Lightly sift the powdered sugar evenly over the doily. Then carefully remove the doily.
I want to encourage youngsters (male or female) to get into the kitchen and enjoy cooking. TASTE it!
