Carrot bread

We went camping this weekend! I'm not much of an outdoorsy girl, but this was super easy and fun. We went to the beach, swan in the freezing ocean, grilled hot dogs, and made s'mores.

I brought a loaf of carrot bread for breakfast, and everyone seemed to like it so much, I thought I'd share the recipe here. It's super easy to make. The hardest part is grating the carrots up.

Carrot bread

You will need:

1 cup sugar
3/4 cups cooking oil
1 egg (slightly beaten)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup nuts or raisins
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 large carrots, grated fine

Combine the sugar and cooking oil in a medium bowl with a mixer. Add the egg. In a smaller bowl, combine the flour and baking soda. Stir the nuts and/or raisins in. This will coat them and keep them from rising up to the top of the bread. Add the cinnamon and salt.

Pour the dry ingredients in with the sugar mixture. Add the vanilla and stir. Fold in the carrots.
Pour the batter into a lightly greased bread loaf pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 1/2 hour or until lightly brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
