Directions

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Lay parchment paper on the bottom of a cake pan and spray non-stick spray throughout.

2. Whisk together eggs and sugar in a bowl together until throughly mixed.

3. Add carrots and the optional zest of lemon, orange and orange juice. Omit if you do not have lemon or orange. I did not, I incorporated the applesauce instead and it came out fine.

4. Slowly stir in the spices, baking soda and flour.

5. Add the walnuts and with a spatula, fold in the raisins. Use the spatula to move contents into the cake pan.

6. Place in the oven and cook for 40 minutes.
