Carrot Cake

After a long time I tried to make a cake, probably the only one that I managed to make good, that was 2 years ago. This time it is flat again, and I have no idea why! Although, it still tastes like a nice carrot cake.

Ingredients

3 cups of carrots (5 average carrots)
1.5 cups of flower
1 cup of brown sugar
half cup of raisins
A handful of crushed nuts (preferably walnuts, but can be any)
2 eggs
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of baking powder

Procedure

Mix carrots with half of sugar and set asside. Beat the egg with half amount of sugar. In a small stream add oil. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients (flower, baking powder, cinamon). Add egg-oil to the flower mix slowly, and mix everything together. At the end, add carrots and raisins. Preheat oven to 180-200C and bake for ~45-50 minutes, depending how thick is the cake.

You can also add crushed pineapples, more spices (nutmeg, cloves, cardamon), replace half carrots with squash (although may sound strange, its really good!).

Experiences

The cake is really good and simple to make, but... if anybody knows, how to make it NOT to fall flat at the end of baking, please let me know! No, I do not shout and make noises while the cake is in oven :) By the way, I would use less sugar than in original recipe, but guys like it that way :) Next time, I will try a really healthy sugar-free low-fat carrot cake, though I am sure I will be the only one eating it.
