Carrot Raisin Quick Bread

Carrot Raisin Quick Bread created by Lalaloula

Another gem I found through Cooking Light magazine. This gives a very moist and packed with flavor quick bread that is lower in calories than a cake. I like to add chopped walnuts or pecans to the bread but the original recipe does not call for them so I left it as written. It is also fun to add about a 1/2 cup of shredded unsweetened coconut for a fun twist.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F Coat an 8-inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder and salt together.
  • In a small bowl, combine carrots, brown sugar, raisins, milk, melted butter and beaten egg together.
  • Add the carrot mixture to the flour mixture, stirring just until mixture is moist (over mixing will produce a dry/dense bread).
  • Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes or until a pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.

    YUM, what a great, moist fruity bread! Loved it!<br/>I made a couple of changes due to personal preference: Instead of all ap flour, I used half whole spelt flour, since I dont like nutmeg that much I used cake spice instead. Also I reduced the sugar to 1 tbs so that I could also spread this with savoury toppings and instead of 1/2 c raisins I used 1/4 c 1/4 c desiccated coconut. <br/>As you can see from my pic I made muffins instead of a loaf so that I could try this quicker. ;)<br/>THANKS SO MUCH for sharing a definite keeper with us, Hokies!<br/>Made and reviewed for Photo Tag August 2012.
