Carrot Bread

Of course, we ran out of bread again. Yes, its easy to get bread from the supermarket, but the 'good-for-you' breads are very expensive, and really, its not that hard making bread at home. My only concern for making bread at home is the cost of  firing up the oven. However, since I was roasting that chicken in the oven today, and since it takes more or less the same amount of time to bake bread as to roast chicken, I put them both in together. 


So, I've made banana bread, flax seed bread, and so today I'm making carrot bread!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup warm water
1/2 teaspoon yeast
2 1/2 cups flour
1 carrot (shredded)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons flax seed meal

Method:

Activate your yeast in the warm water. Wait 5min or until they start bubbling before use.

To the yeast mixture, add all the other ingredients and mix. Set aside for at least 30min, until the dough doubles in size.
