Mimi's Cafe Carrot Raisin Bread

Total Time

Found this recipe on a Sacramento paper's website and it is delish! Differs from the other recipe posted on this site. I've never been to Mimi's Cafe but if this bread is any indication it must be a special place. This is sweet, moist and dense without being too dense - perfect carrot bread in my opinion!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray three small (5-by-3-inch) loaf pans with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, oil, egg and vanilla. Stir milk mixture into dry ingredients until well-blended. Sprinkle carrot and raisins over batter and blend until evenly distributed.
  3. Divide batter evenly among pans and bake 35 minutes or until a tester inserted in center of loaf comes out clean. Cool in pans 5 minutes on cooling rack, remove from pans. Cool on rack an additional 15 minutes before slicing. Serve warm.

These were good. They weren't really like the ones from Mimi's Cafe, though. I was just there last week and they were much darker in color (molasses or brown sugar, maybe?), and a little more moist. Wasn't a disappointment by any stretch, but wasn't exactly like Mimi's, either.
