Preheat the oven to 350. Lightly grease a 1 1/2 qt. dish, set aside. Cook carrots in boiling water to cover for 15 min. or until tender, drain. In food processor or blender, combine carrots, butter, eggs, flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and process til smooth. Spoon into prepared dish. Bake about 1 hour or until set and lightly browned. Serve immediately.
