We were facing another gloomy morning this morning, so I decided that my Tea Party Tuesday baking should be something in the comfort food line. I thought a nice carrot loaf would be in order.
I'd not made this particular loaf before, and as I was making it I thought there should probably be some liquid in there and wondered if maybe the recipe was missing an ingredient.
But after 50 minutes of baking, all was well, and it turned out great with a nice crisp top, and the insides are soft. I added raisins because I like raisins in a nice spice loaf (and also because I didn't have any walnuts to add).
1/2 cup cooking oil
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup finely grated carrots
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp ginger
1/2 cup walnuts
Beat oil, eggs and sugar together until blended. Stir in carrots.
In another bowl mix all remaining ingredients to combine. Pour into carrot batter. Stir only to moisten. Turn into greased 9 x 5 x 3" loaf pan. Bake in 350'F oven for about 1 hour, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before removing from pan to cool on rack.
