Carrot cake - reducing calories

Here's my recipe for a less fattening carrot cake.

Does anyone have any ideas for producing classic recipes with less fat and sugar? I know the answer is to eat less, but I still want to enjoy my food.

Re: Carrot cake - reducing calories

At home, I would make my own yogurt from skim milk, then strain it through a cheese cloth. I would mostly mix fruit with this, but I also decided to start incorporating it into recipes. Eventually, I used it to make carrot cupcakes, and then repeated it several times. If I replaced half or even 3/4 of the butter it actually tasted better, for being tangier. If I replaced all the butter it got a bit denser and tasted a bit sweeter, so I decided to go with the 3/4 bit anyways.

I would assume this reduces calories, since you're looking at sugar and protein instead of fat. You can probably buy thick Turkish yogurt (at home it's all watery and full of additives) and while there will be more fat than skim milk, it should be easier, and still lower-calorie.
