I first attempted a carrot loaf in the bad old days before I could get a loaf to hold it's shape. So not surprisingly I only succeeded in a tasty but chewy carrot log that the kids wouldn't eat.
But now in the brave new world of breadmaking, and after the chunky grated beetroot bloomer, I thought I'd try to puree cooked carrot to colour the loaf.
The dough needed less water than the recipe with raw carrot said so I had to keep on adding flour to turn it from a sticky mess to a kneadable dough. I have just made it again, this time in the bread maker and put less water in and it appears to have worked again. The kids eat it happily, even when I owned up to them that it was another carrot loaf.
375g white bread flour
150g cooked carrot puree
