another tea bread

Here’s another tea bread I made in the last week – not as moist or sweet as the first one but no doubt healthier (no sugar!). I may repeat this recipe, but the previous one is still my favourite so far.

This one is best enjoyed with a topping (we use olive spread) and with a cup of tea or glass of milk.

1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 2 lb loaf pan.
Beat together oil, honey and syrup until combined; add eggs, vanilla extract and ground carrots.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in nuts.
Pour into loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Let cool in the pan for 5-10 mins, then run a knife along the edges if stuck and turn into a cooling rack. Allow to cool.
