Carrot bread

I made a carrot bread today. It turned out to be so good! Here the recipe:

200 g of flour, 4 eggs, 330 g of grated carrots, 180 g of margarine, 10 g of baking powder, 10 g of baking soda, 5 g of cinnamon, 2 g of nutmeg powder, 100 g of raisins, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 50 g of brown sugar, 150 g of normal sugar, a pinch of salt, some additional brown sugar for the topping.

Grate the carrots and place on a kitchen towel. Cover with another towel and let dry. Rinse well the raisins in water, so that they become softer. Beat together the eggs, the margarine, and the sugar (brown+white). Mix them well till you get an homogeneous compound.
Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg powder, raisins. Add the carrots to this compound and pour the egg mixture into the dried ingredients (flour et al.) and mix well.
Grease a baking pot, pour the mixture and sprinkle the surface with a bit of brown sugar.
Bake at 180 degrees for 40'-one hour.

This cake is quite similar to the one I posted here. I like them both and everyone else who tried them, loved them too!
