    Sackville's Note:

    I found this on another site and really enjoyed it. Apparently it's common in Switzerland. It's lighter than the American style carrot cakes, a bit thinner and has a distinct lemon flavour. It also doesn't have any added fats and very little flour, if you're trying to avoid wheat. The original calls for icing the cake but I don't think it's necessary. It's sweet enough on its own.

    1. 1
      Grease and flour a 9 inch square cake pan. Preheat oven to about 180 degrees Celsius.
    2. 2
      Beat the egg yolks into the sugar thoroughly. Add lemon juice and the zest, the carrots, almonds, flour, raisins and baking powder. Mix well.
    3. 3
      Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into the cake mixture with a large spoon.
    4. 4
      Pour the batter into the pan.
    5. 5
      Bake until the cake tests clean and the top has a nice golden colour. In a fan oven this only took me about 20 minutes but the original recipe says to bake for 45 minutes.

      I left out the zest and added a little cinnamon and nutmeg and it turned out great. Very moist and quite sticky. No frosting needed.

      Makes a lovely light cake. I iced mine, stacked it into two layers and cut into small squares. This was partly because I messed up the top by turning it out on the cake rack and it stuck. Next time I'll flip it so that the bottom is on the cake rack. Also, I made this for a meeting in a couple of days and I thought it would last better iced. I substituted almonds for the raisins, which made it hard to cut but I think it would be hard to cut neatly anyway. Tastes great! Photos to follow.
