1 tbs of baking powder*
3 eggs**

2 to 3 drops of vanilla essence**

2.In another bowl,whisk Ingredients ** using electrical mixer/or own hands until everything blends together smoothly and frothy
3.Add the flour mixture little by little in the egg mixture and whisk altogether until everything blends well.
4.Lastly add the shredded carrot,nuts,raisins in the mixture,whisk using spatula ready to be baked

Cream Cheese Frosting Method
1.When the cake is ready,cold it first in the fridge for few hours
