The high school Mark attends requires community service. He and two of his pals were a little short, so I came up with a great idea: I'd lead 3 teenaged boys in baking goods for the library's used book and bake sale. I must be nuts. Actually, they are nice boys (even Mark), and I happily fed them teenage-boy-friendly dinners as a reward.
The carrot bread didn't make the picture; it was in the bottom of the box:
They did a lot of baking!
So, since the carrot bread didn't make the pictures, here's the recipe I created:
3 cups flour
1-1/2 cups sugar
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 eggs (or 3 egg whites)
2/3 cup vegetable oil
2 cups shredded carrots
1 cup chopped walnuts
Stir together the dry ingredients in your mixing bowl. Add the eggs and oil, and beat until combined. Stir in the carrots and walnuts. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans. Bake at 350F for 45 to 55 minutes, depending upon your pan size. 2 loaves.
The bake sale ladies were impressed with the giant box of goodies Mark hauled in on Saturday morning, and evidently these offerings sold pretty well. I think Mark was pleased despite his grumbles to the contrary.
Happy Monday, everyone!
