Sweet Carrot, Raisin & Nut Bread


If you have ever been to Mimi’s Restaurant then you already know how amazing the bread they serve you is. If not then, you have truly missed out on amazing bread. After searching for the recipe for sometime and none tasting like the original one I finally created one that taste identical to the one I was served. If you do not have a mini pan, you can use pretty much about any other pan you would like to such as a bread loaf, mini bread load and regular muffin pan. The original one is made into a loaf then sliced and served with butter.

I have not been part of the ‘Bread Baking Day’ for awhile now. But I am finally situated with our move and can start up again. I am glad because I really enjoy baking. I decided to add this moist, sweet, delicious bread into BBD #22 this month. This event is titled “Sweet Breads” and hosted by Stephanie from ‘Hefe und mehr’.

1-1/2 cups shredded carrots
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger, ground
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup raisins
3/4 cup walnuts, broken into small pieces
3/4 cup molasses
3 eggs
1 cup sunflower oil

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large mixing bowl, add carrots, flour, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, baking powder, baking soda, salt, vanilla, raisins, molasses, eggs and oil. With a hand mixer, mix well. Fold in walnuts.

2. In a non-stick mini muffin pan, fill cups 1/2 full. Bake for 15 minutes.

Yields: 50

    Never tasted Mimi’s, but those mini quick breads looks so moist and delcious. I love carrots in breads and cakes, so I know I’d devour those in a nano-second! Beautiful job in this month’s BBD!
