1/3 C. + 3 T. Light Brown Sugar, packed, divided

Heat oven to 350º F. Spray a 9-inch springform pan with non-stick cooking spray. Place carrots into a food processor and process for about 1-2 minutes, until pureed. Add nut bread & muffin mix, 1/3 C. brown sugar, 1 t. cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, 3 eggs, honey, canola oil, and water. Process for 1 minute or until mixture is combined. Place half of mixture into prepared pan. Beat cream cheese with electric mixer for about a minute until smooth.
