This easy, quick carrot bread would make a great breakfast with Greek yoghurt and fresh seasonal fruit. The grated carrot and honey give this bread wonderful soft crumb texture and mild sweetness. If you want to pamper yourself with something extra and richer, top the bread with a generous smear of (nut) butter or even cream cheese frosting!

  • 100 g Whole spelt flour
  • 140 g Refined spelt flour
  • 12 g Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Ground cloves
  • 1 Large pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 Large pinch of salt
  • 220 g Finely grated carrots
  • 80 g Honey
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 100 ml Olive oil (or avocado oil)
  • 80 g Rum soaked raisins
  • 4 Left over seedy crackers for the topping (or walnuts), break into smaller pieces
  • 2 tsp Raw brown sugar for the topping
  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F. Grease a 21x10x8cm loaf pan and line the bottom and sides with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flours, baing powder, spices, and salt. Peel and grate the carrots, set aside.
  3. Place honey, eggs, and olive oil in another bowl. Beat until combined. Add the flour mixture in 2 batches and stir with a spatula until just combined. Add in carrot and raisins. Fold to combine.
  4. Scrape the batter into the prepared baking pan. Top with seedy crackers or walnuts. Bake for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean that is inserted in the center and the top is golden brown and crunchy. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

I love carrot cake and bread too. I would take a nice slice and spread a generous layer of orange-ginger marmalade.

I don't eat sweet breads, but if I ever did I'd sure eat this one if you put some extra rum in it for me LOL I made zucchini patties for lunch today and it will be breaded smoked tofu and carrot mash tomorrow!

Almost never make carrot bread for some reason. Dunno why -- like all sorts of quick breads. Must make this! Really good stuff -- thanks.

This looks a little 'drier' than our traditional British Carrot cake recipe, but delicious nonetheless.

I am also intrigued that you add some quite strong spices alongside the carrot, an interesting flavour combination I need to try!

Great with a cup of coffee for morning 'elevenses'

Have a lovley weekend and thanks for sharing :)

It looks gorgeous Angie! I use a lot of whole wheat flour but never spelt. This sounds like the perfect recipe to try it. And it uses honey, which I love! Thanks for sharing.

This does sound wonderful, Angie, and not nearly as decadent as carrot cake!
