Grease the cake tin.

Sift together flour, cinnamon powder, baking powder and salt.

Mix together grated carrots, brown sugar, oil, nuts, dates and eggs in a large bowl. Now add the sifted flour mixture to it and mix thoroughly.

Pour the cake batter into the greased cake tin and bake on preheated oven at 180 C for 25 – 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
