Beat together the egg yolks and sugar using the whisk on a hand mixer for approx. 5 mins. until the mixture is light and fluffy. Mix in the carrots, almonds and lemon. Combine the flour and baking powder, mix in. Beat the egg white with the salt until stiff, carefully fold into the mixture using a rubber spatula. Transfer the cake mixture to a springform pan (approx. 24 cm in diameter, base lined with baking paper).
