Usually any cake is easy to make, although it is advisable to apply some trick to get homemade sponge cakes. However, in the case of the carrot cake does not have to do anything special to make it come out because it is not a sponge cake in search of everything else.
The crumb of this cake is dense, but juicy and moist. This involves the carrot, which plays a wonderful role. Do not confuse this carrot cake with carrot cake or carrot cake has nothing to do.

We grate the carrots, chop the walnuts and mix them. If we have a kitchen robot, we can put both ingredients in the glass and grind. It will be faster. If we do not have nuts or we do not like them, we can substitute them for another dry fruit such as hazelnut or almond. Any of them will bring an interesting touch of flavor and texture to the sponge cake.
We lightly beat the eggs with the sugar in a deep bowl. Add the sifted flour and chemical impeller, along with a pinch of salt. Mix to integrate. Incorporate vanilla essence, vegetable oil and stir again. Finally add the carrot and crushed nuts and mix well.
Cover the base of two cake molds of 16×8 cm with pressurized paper and distribute the dough between them. We can use a single larger mold, but I like this size because it allows me to freeze one of them comfortably. Cook in a preheated oven at 180 ° C for 35-40 minutes or until checked by touching the surface with the finger that the biscuits are ready.
