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

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.
