Spoon and carefully spread batter on carrots in prepared pan.

  4. Slice square cake in halves to make two rectangles. Place one half, carrot side up, on plate. Spread 1/2 cup Spiced Honey Yogurt. Layer remaining cake half, carrot side down. Dollop remaining yogurt. Top with citrus segments. If desired, dust with additional pumpkin pie spice and drizzle with honey. Makes 8 servings.

From the Test Kitchen

Substitution for Greek-Style Yogurt:

Line a strainer with three layers of 100 percent cotton cheesecloth or a paper coffee filter. Suspend strainer over bowl. Spoon in 1-1/2 cups plain low-fat yogurt. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 24 hours. Discard liquid. Refrigerate yogurt, covered, up to 1 week. Makes about 3/4 cup.
