Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two-8 inch round cake pans. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, oil, white sugar, and vanilla.
Mix dry ingredients into wet. Add zucchini and raisins, stir until blended. Pour into prepared pans and bake 30-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Let cakes cool in pan for about 10 minutes, then turn out onto wire racks and cool completely.
Frost with Goat Cheese Icing. Coarsely chop 2 cups pecans and press into sides of cake. Store the cake in the refrigerator, but let it stand at room temperature a bit until serving.
