Beat eggs with sugar until white, fluffy mass. Add vegetable oil, carrots and orange zest. Mix well. Then we introduce the dry ingredients in parts and knead the dough is not thick. Add nuts and raisins. Let the dough stand for 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. In silicone muffin molds, lay out the dough into 3/4 of the form. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the skewer is dry.
