The main ingredient of this cake is Carrot. Fresh, sweet carrots bring out the best taste. 
Wash, scrape the skin and grate them. 

Ingredients :
1. 3 cups grated carrot
2. 2 cups flour
3. 2 cups sugar
4. 1 and 1/2 cup butter
5. 4 eggs (5 if eggs are small)
6. 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
7. 2 to 3 tsp powdered cinnamon 
8. 2 and 1/2 tsp baking powder
9. 1 cup chopped almond+walnut+cashew-nut

Method : 
Sift together flour and baking powder. 
Cream butter and sugar. Add egg, beat well. Add vanilla.
Add flour to the mixture and blend well.
Put in the chopped nuts and mix well. 
Finally add carrot and cinnamon powder, blend thoroughly. 

Pour on a greased pan/baking tin and bake at 100 degree C for 20 minutes.
Since carrot contains water, this cake lasts around 3 days in winter and just 2 days during summer.
