Step 1

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly oil and flour a 9x5" loaf pan. Whisk baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and 1 1/4 cups flour in a small bowl. Toss raisins, walnuts, and remaining 1 tablespoon flour in another bowl.

2. Using an electric mixer on medium high speed, beat eggs and granulated sugar in a medium bowl until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. With mixer running, gradually drizzle in 1 cup oil, then add vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients, raisin mixture, and carrots; scrape batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle with brown sugar.

3. Bake cake until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 65–75 minutes. Let cool slightly in pan, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
