Combine all the ingredients, except for the carrots and walnuts, in a large mixing bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture is smooth, or beat on low speed in a food processing machine. Stir in the carrot and walnuts. Pour the mixture into a 20 cm (8") ring tin which has been well greased. Bake in a preheated moderate oven 160C/325F/Gas 3 for 45 minutes. When cooked, leave the cake to stand for 5 minutes before turning out to cool on a wire rack. Beat the softened butter and cream cheese together until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Add the lemon rind and sifted icing sugar and continue beating until the icing is quite smooth. Ice the cake with a spatula.

Carrots are rich in vitamin A, B and C and, because of their very pleasant flavor, they are used frequently in sweet and savory dishes, especially in cakes where they add moistness and a lightness to the texture. Use young, fresh carrots whatever possible.
