Blend together the vegetable oil , boown sugar and egg. Add yogurt and vanilla,. In a seperate bowl stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinamon and nutmeg.. Add half hte flour mixture to the egg mixture and mix well. Thoughtly drain pineapple and add to cake batter, stir in remaining flour mixture. Add grated carrots.

Cut cake into 16 squaress and frost each square with ½ tsp frosting. Yield 16.
