Swiss Carrot Cake

I found this on another site and really enjoyed it. Apparently it's common in Switzerland. It's lighter than the American style carrot cakes, a bit thinner and has a distinct lemon flavour. It also doesn't have any added fats and very little flour, if you're trying to avoid wheat. The original calls for icing the cake but I don't think it's necessary. It's sweet enough on its own.
