Carrot bread

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180οC (350ο F) set to fan.
  • Grease a 10x22 cm loaf tin with sunflower oil and dust it with a little flour. Set it aside until needed.
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the eggs, the sugar, and beat them with the whisk attachment at medium speed, for 2-3 minutes, until fluffy.
  • Add the sunflower oil and beat for a few seconds until incorporated into the mixture.
  • Grate the carrots on the large shredding holes of a box grater and add them into a bowl.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, nutmeg, turmeric, thyme, rosemary, 180 g almonds, salt, pepper, and mix the ingredients with a spoon.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and add the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients. 
  • Mix with a silicone spatula until the ingredients are homogenized and you get a uniform mixture.
  • Pour the mixture into the loaf tin, sprinkle with the rest of the almonds, and bake it for 1 hour until the bread is firm and golden.
  • Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool completely on a rack before taking it out of the loaf tin.

For the coating

  • Mix all the ingredients into a bowl, until they are homogenized and become like a cream.
  • Cut the bread into slices, shape rosettes with the cream to decorate it, or spread the cream on the surface of the bread and serve with coriander leaves.
