>carrots and spice makey nice


the smells emanating from the kitchen while this was baking… mmmmm – again – i wish i had smell-o-vision! you’ll just have to try out the recipe yourself to know what im talking about :0)

this ones super easy to make and licking the beaters was the bessssst part, not being able to have eggs does have its upside some days!

i found this general recipe online then re-worked it so it is Mel-able – toasted with some butter for breakfast, icing or cream cheese added for dessert – hope you enjoy it as much as we did 


Serves 8 to 10
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9-inch loaf pan with a piece of parchment paper or use stoneware plain.

Mix together in a large mixing bowl:
2 c. Basic GF flour mix
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. light brown sugar
1 t. of a starch (potato, arrowroot, or corn)
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
3/4 t. xanthan gum
1 t. ground cinnamon
1 t. ground ginger
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/8 t. ground cloves

Add in and beat:
1/4 c. egg whites or use egg-replacer for 2 eggs
1/2 c. light olive oil or canola oil
1/2 c. coconut/rice milk

Beat theses ingredients together, the consistency should be close to muffin batter. Add in more milk as needed.

Add in:
1 c. finely grated carrots
1/2 c. raisins or craisins
1/2 c. chopped pecans or walnuts, optional

Mix these into the batter, scoop into bead loaf pan, smooth out the top, bake for one hour.
When the loaf feels firm to the touch and a wooden pick inserted into the center emerges clean, remove the pan from the oven and set it on a wire rack to cool. When the loaf has settled and is cool enough to handle, lift it out of the pan and place back on cooling rack. 
off to rock out four miles before being treated to dinner by the oldest bro B and his fam at our new favorite hangout – the Twin Light Taphouse – beer lovers of the Jersey Shore, hitting this place up is a must!!  
ps – T, was this post colorless enough for you?! ;0)
