lazy cooks carrot cake.

Hi everyone.....HAPPY NEW YEAR........as2011 rolls to an end and we keep our fingers crossed about 2012......its time to ponder over the past year........make keepable resolutions for2012 cake!What did you think?i'm not here to give some major gyan........this is a food blog!
 This is my mom's recipe for carrot sister and i had plenty of this while growing up......and i make this for my children(ofcourse only when carrots are available).... .a wonderful cake.....healthy and nice...and perfect for welcoming the new year!
1.3 cups atta(whole wheat flour)....told ya its healthy.
2.2 cups grated carrots...healthy
3.2 cups chopped dates....same thing.(healthy!)
4.1tsp baking powder
5.1tsp baking soda.
6.1 1/2 cups sugar
7.1 1/2 cups oil
8.6 medium or 8 small eggs.
9.1tsp mixed spice
10.1 cup chopped walnuts(optional)

1.Simply put everything in a bowl and beat till combined........isnt my moms recipe the best!
2.Preheat the oven for about 10 mins,grease and dust your baking pans..i get 3 medium sized loaf cakes......the shape doesnt matter..grease and dust whichever pan you're happy with.Bake at 180degC for approx.45 mins....basically till the cake gets done(comes away from the edges.and a skewer inserted in the cake comes out clean.)
3.Thats it.Done.......................I serve it without any icing..if you want.... some icing sugar can be dusted on top....or if you have access to cream cheese,then thats what goes on top.enjoy!
Also to start the new year on the right note am sending this as an entry to the event at zesty palette
