Sift in remaining dry ingredients, alternating with eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add carrots and blend in well. Stir in nuts. Pour batter into a greased 10-inch tube pan. Bake at 325° for about 70 minutes, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out with no batter clinging. Cool upright in the pan. Remove sides then remove cake from bottom of pan. If desired, ice with Orange Glaze or a thinned cream cheese icing.
