Grate them on a lightly floured grater or cut them into small pieces and chop them in the mixer. Collect the pulp in a bowl.

Sift the flours.

Separate the yolks from the egg whites. Whip the egg whites with a pinch of salt and beat the yolks with the sugar until smooth and creamy and add it to the carrot pulp.

Mix and add the flour a little at a time and the baking soda.

Lastly, add the egg whites whipped stiffly, stirring gently from the bottom to the top.

Grease the baking pan with the butter before pouring in the mixture and bake for about 50 minutes to 180 C.

Otherwise, wet a sheet of baking paper, wring it out, put it in the cake pan and add the mixture.

Tips: to check the cooking test the stick, if it comes out dry it means that it is cooked.

Remove from the oven and let it cool to room temperature before sprinkling with icing sugar. Serve.
