I am still on my quest to make a yummy carrot bread! So I just bought a fresh bag of carrots, I figure out if I have all the ingredients, when I realize my son has cooked up all my eggs! But surely you can substitute eggs with something else? So I google and find that yes you can! There were so many to choose from...so I chose the easiest one, milk :)
1 1/2 Cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 cup Walnuts
1/2 cup Raisins
I mixed all of the above together in a big mixing bowl, and in a big measuring cup I mixed the below ingredients.
1 cup of carrots shredded - I shredded 2 carrots and it was a bit more over a cup...oh well :)
1/2 cup of apple sauce
150 ml milk
3/4 cup Agave Syrup (or you can use 1cup of sugar)
Pour in to dry ingredient and mix well. I decided at this point to throw in some unsweetened shredded coconut...let say 1/4 cup just for fun...
As you know I do not have a loaf pan so I poured the batter into a greased casserole dish...threw it in a 350 preheated oven...and now I am waiting :)
So checked it about 20min in, and realized that I forgot to sprinkle the sunflower seeds on! So sprinkled them on. But it didn't work they all are just loose on top :( oh well. I baked it for 40-45 mins.
It turned out a bit heavy, but it is so very yummy! I think next time I may try using yeast to make it more like bread. I would describe this recipe as a not very sweet carrot cake. But all in all....the kids love it so I would say it was successful!
