Carrot Cake

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups flour
3 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 cups grated carrots

Combine eggs, sugar and oil in large bowl. In separate bowl combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Beat the dry ingredients into the egg mixture, then stir in the carrots.

Pour into two greased 9 inch round cake pans. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean). Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to cooling racks. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
