orange carrot cake


I have a huge amount of carrots and oranges  , so i decide to make  a cake since orange and carrot  are good friends so  i google some carrot cake recipes then i replace the nuts with orange zest and it was amazing:

this is my first carrot cake so  i was afraid  it will not be so good but i will take the risk

the recipe

3 cups shredded carrots

2 cups flour

 2 cups  sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

 2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 eggs

3/4 cup oil

1 cup orange zest (the amount is too much but the  taste  is so good )

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 180 C and center your oven rack

In a bowl whisk the flour,baking powder, baking soda, salt.

In a separate bowl whisk the eggs, a Little of the orange zest and sugar until pale then add the oil and mix well.

Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and mix well, the mixture will be heavy

   add the carrot and the orange zest and mix    .

Pour the mixture into a greased cake tin and bake  until a knife inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean
