I decided to try using carrots in yeasted bread instead of traditional carrot cake, quick breads and muffins. I found a recipe to try and it turned out great! It's a sweet dough with raisins and shredded carrots. It makes a delicious sandwich bread and we will be enjoying this toasted with morning coffee.
The recipe has directions for several loaf sizes. I made the large loaf version and baked it in my airbake loaf pan. It baked into a very large loaf. I think next time I will divide it into two loaves. We love raisins, and I think next time I will add more raisins than the recipe calls for. I might even increase the shredded carrots somewhat and maybe add some chopped nuts.
I mixed this dough in my bread machine, on dough cycle. After the first rise in the machine, I shaped the loaf and placed it in the pan for the second rise. I then baked it in the oven as directed.
I think this bread is a nice, and a healthy, alternative to traditional raisin bread. Give it a try!
