Christmas & Carrot Raisin Bread

I hope everybody who celebrated had a great Christmas – I sure did!  Lots of family and good food! 🙂

I made Mama Pea’s Old-Fashioned Pumpkin Pie for dessert on Christmas Day which was a huge hit!

The crust is awesome and actually super-easy to make.  The filling is super moist and not overly sweet..just perfect!

Ok, now onto a delicious recipe that I am very excited to share with you guys.

*Carrot Raisin Bread*

Healthy, moist, and delicious.

1 loaf (about 12 slices)

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (or whole wheat, or a mixture–I use all-purpose because my stomach doesn’t agree with whole wheat all of the time 😦 )
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 1 flax egg (1 Tbsp. ground flax + 3 Tbsp. water)
  • 3 Tbsp. applesauce
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9×5 inch loaf pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and ginger.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine honey, soy milk, flax egg, applesauce, shredded carrots, and vanilla extract.
  4. Slowly add wet ingredients to dry, stirring to combine.  Mix in raisins.
  5. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake for 45-50 minutes.
