For the Cake
  1. In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  2. Combine the water, dates, raisins, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and gently simmer for five minutes.
  3. Place shredded carrots in a large bowl and pour the hot water mixture over them, allow to cool completely. Add orange juice concentrate to the carrot mixture and mix well. Add dry ingredients and stir well to combine. Add a little more water if too stiff.
  4. Pour the batter into a lightly greased cake pan. Bake at 375* for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Frost with Maple Nut Glaze.
