  This is billed as the richest carrot cake receipe ever.
  
  1. Lightly grease and flour a 10-by-4-inch tube pan. Sift flour with
  baking powder, sodat, cinnamon and salt; set asode. Wash and pare
  carrots; grate on medium grater or use coarse blade of food
  processor. Should measure 4 cups. Preheat oven to 350F.
  
  2. In large bowl of mixer, at high speed, beat butter and brown and
  granulated sugars, occasionally scraping side of bowl with rubber
  scraper, until light and fluffy-about 4 minutes. Add eggs, one at a
  time; beat well after each addition until smooth and light.
  
  3. In measuring cup, combine lemon and orange peels and juices. At low
  speed, beat in flour mixture (in fourths), alternately with
  lemon-orange mixture (in thirds), beginning and ending with flour
  mixture. Beat just until smooth-about 1 minute.
  
  4. With wooden spoon, stir in grated carrot, nuts and raisins; mix
  well. Turn into the prepared tube pan; spread evenly. Bake 60
  minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in center of the cake comes
  out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack 20 minutes, to cool slightly.
  
  5. Meanwhile, make cream-cheese glaze: In medium bowl, combine cream
  cheese, lemon juice, lemon peel and confectioners' sugar. With
  portable electric mixer at high speed, beat mixture until smooth. Set
  aside. Gently loosen edge of cake with spatula.
  
  6. Turn out of pan onto rack.  Spread glase over top of the warm cake,
  letting it run down side of cake. Carefully remove cake to cake
  platter. Sprinkle chopped walnuts around top edge of cake. Serves 12.
