Recipe - Mini Carrot & Orange Loaves

Lets not talk about yesterdays market. I think the population of Taranaki was at the Mystery Creek Field Days as it was eerily quiet! Despite the lack of traffic through town, my regulars made the trek through the rain for muesli, muffins and mini loaves. My Sticky Date & Apricot with Muesli Icing are a hit as well as my low fat Wholemeal Mini Carrot & Orange Loaves. So here is the recipe for them. Well not the muffins. I might share that with you another day.

Mini Carrot & Orange Loaves

Mini loaf tray for 8 loaves
2 cups wholemeal flour
2t baking powder
1/2 cup brown sugar
25g butter
2 eggs
1 cup grated carrot
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
2 T milk
1/4 cup orange juice
100ml sunflower oil

Cream butter & sugar until light & fluffy. Add in eggs one at a time beating well. Add orange juice, oil, butter and mix well. Add carrot & mix before adding in all dry ingredients. Finally mix in the milk. The mixture should be quite sticky & gluggy. Spray loaf pan with oil and half fill each loaf hole with the mixture. Bake for 20mins in a moderate oven 160C (no fan). The loaves should spring back when lightly touched. Leave in pan for 10 mins before turning out and glaze with lemon icing. Devour!
