  and chop nuts coarsely using on/off turns. Transfer to sheet of waxed
  paper.

  mixture is thick and light, about 1 minute. Add butter and vanilla.
  Process until mixture is fluffy, scraping down sides of work bowl as
  necessary, about 1 minute. Transfer egg mixture to large bowl.
  
  Shredding Disk: Stand carrot pieces in feed tube. Shred using firm
  pressure. Mix carrots into dried fruit mixture. Add 1/4 Cup dry
  ingredients and toss to coat, separating fruit pieces. Stir fruit
  mixture gently into egg mixture. Fold in remaining dry ingredients.

  center of cake comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Cool cake in pan on
  rack 10 minutes. Turn cake out onto rack and cool completely. (Can be
  prepared 2 days ahead. Wrap and store at room temperature.) Place
  cake on platter. Sift powdered sugar over and serve.
