How to Make Carrot Bread: Low-Fat and Wholegrain

  • Add the wet mixture to the dry, with a spatula or a whisk, using 1/3rd of the flour at a time. You want a lumpy but well-integrated batter.
  • Do not over mix because you don't want to develop the gluten in the flour.
  • Grease and flour two standard-size loaf pans.
  • Divide the batter equally between the two and smooth down the top.
  • Bake in a preheated 325 degree C oven 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • Cool on a rack about 15 minutes, and then slide a knife around the edges to unmold. Place right-side-up on a rack to cool.
