Quick carrot bread

by: admin Sandwich

These quick and easy carrot breads are ideal for breakfast or to compliment a soup dish.


  • 1 ½ ounce of butter
  • 2 ounces of carrot
  • ¼ cup of rolled oats
  • 1 ¼ cup of wheat flour
  • ½ tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cup cultured buttermilk

You will need parchment paper, unless you have an oven tray that is very non-stick.


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Take the butter out of the fridge, you need room temperature butter for this recipe.
  3. Peel and finely grate the carrot.
  4. In a bowl, mix rolled oats, wheat flour, baking powder and salt together. Add the butter and use your hands to form a dough.
  5. Add carrots and buttermilk to the dough. Use your hands to swiftly blend the ingredients together, rather than kneading the dough. The end result should be a rather sticky dough.
  6. Divide the dough into four parts and form each part into a bun. (Having some flour on your hands will make this stage easier.) Put the buns on parchment paper on an oven tray and flatten them a bit.
  7. Bake the buns in the middle of the oven for 10 – 12 minutes.
  8. Leave the buns too cool a bit outside the oven before serving.
