Louises carrotcake

This fantastic carrot cake I got from my friend Louise many many years ago and after having served it collegues who really praised it, I will bring her recipy here.

Sorry there isnt a picture, but didn't get to take one before it was all eaten up!

You'll need:

200 gr. of butter
3 1/2 dl. brown sugar
3 eggs
3 1/3 dl. plain flour
2 teaspoons of cinemon
2 teaspoons of baking powder
5 finely grated carrot
75 gr. of walnuts
1 1/2 dl. of raisins/ sultanas

How to make it:

Whisp butter, sugar and eggs together till soft and fluffy. Shift the flour, baking powder and cinnemon well together and mix it in with the egg/butter mix along with the grated carrots, raisins and walnuts. Pour the mix into a buttered and floured baking round baking mould and bake the cake in the middle of the oven at 175 degrees for about 45 or until done.

Sometimes I frost it with an icing made from soft butter, cream cheese, vanilla, icing sugar and lemon juice- which i wisp until very airy- and sometimes i just dust it over with some icing sugar.
