Grate the carrots, chop the nuts and mix them. If we have a kitchen robot, we can put both ingredients in the glass and crush. Will be faster. If we don't have nuts or we don't like them, we can replace them with another dried fruit like hazelnut or almond. Any of them will bring an interesting touch of flavor and texture to the cake.
Lightly beat the eggs with the sugar in a deep bowl. Add the sifted flour and chemical impeller, along with a pinch of salt. Mix until integrated. We incorporate the essence of vanilla, vegetable oil and stir again. Finally we add the carrot and crushed nuts and mix well.
We cover the base of two 16x8 cm cake molds with sulfurized paper and divide the dough between them. We can use a single larger mold, but I like this size because allows me to freeze one of them comfortably. Bake in a preheated oven at 180ºC for 35-40 minutes or until we check by touching the surface with your finger that the biscuits are ready.
