2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
2 teaspoons mixed spice
1 cup (200g) firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup (120g) chopped walnuts

Orange Frosting:
125g cream cheese, chopped

Sift flours, baking powder, soda and spice into a large bowl; stir in the sugar, carrot and walnuts. Stir in the combined oil, cream and eggs until smooth. Pour the mixture into prepared pan and bake in a moderately slow oven for about one hour.

Stand the cake for 10 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool. Top cake with orange frosting.
