Sift flours, add baking powder and soda into a large bowl.
Cut walnuts and almonds and prepare egg replacer.
Add the carrot and liquid to the flour and mix evenly. Add oil, egg replacer, nuts and raisins and then pour into a large oiled and floured tin.
This cake cooks in about 1 1/2 hours in my slow, gas oven (on high)!! So you'll have to experiment...try 250 degrees for an hour or so...Good luck! A very moist and fragrant cake...
