I have an overabundance of carrots from my garden and would like to incorporate them into bread somehow. I was wondering if anyone has made a yeast bread with carrots as an ingredient?
1 1/4 c water
1 1/2 c grated carrot
1 tbsp butter
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 c white flour
2 1/3 c ww flour
2 tsp yeast
You can mix in bread machine, wait til end of 1st rise, then put in a pan, let rise, finish in oven.
I usually double and mix by hand.
Sorry, it's not a very sophisticated recipe/technique, but it's something I do in a hurry, and it's good. Especially this variation: Throw in a tablespoon of this spice mix:
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp chili pdr.
Oooh! Have you ever been to Mimi's Cafe? They have a wonderful carrot and raisin bread.
I've made it at home but it tends to be on the sweeter side. I also have a bit of trouble with the oiliness bread so you might experiment with the oil. Anyway, here is the recipe.
Thank you for these recipes. I will give them both a try. I have never been to Mimi's cafe so this will be new to me.
