Carrot Banana Bread
For Easter, people usually think of serving carrot cake. However, one way to change things up is by making carrot banana bread.
While there are a lot of ways you can add the carrots in this recipe, the best way to do it is to grate it. Use the sharpest or coarsest blade on a grater, and grate thin slices of carrots.
Start your oven at 350 degrees and prepare a loaf pan. At the same time, take a bowl and add some vanilla, an egg, sugar, oil, and sour cream. Mix it together, but not too much!
Once done, place the grated carrots and bananas within the bowl as well and continue stirring. If the contents in the bowl appear a bit too thick, you may add some flour.
Next, place the batter you have prepared into the pan. Using a spatula, ensure that the batter is smooth.
All you need to do is continue with its baking for about an hour. To check if it has been checked, examine the top. It should be a nice golden brown. Once down, take an additional 15 minutes to have it cool.
Next up, we’ll take a look at the Indian’s Gejar Hawla dessert. Gejar means carrot in Hindi. This is a great dessert that utilizes fresh red carrots, and not the normal red carrots that people see.
First, prepare the carrots again. After washing and peeling them, place it in a food processor to get it nice, small, and neat. The original recipe actually calls for the carrots to be grated, but a food processor works just as fine.
Next, prepare just one tablespoon of cashews and roast them for a couple of minutes. Then, prepare your pan and heat almost 3 tablespoons of butter or ghee (Indian butter). Once it is hot, add those carrots to it. Continue cooking the carrots for 10 minutes.
We hope you like stirring because this recipe has a lot of it. After, add some evaporated milk and keep stirring. Add sugar then stir. Add nuts then stir. Ensure that the sugar is gone.
We hope these tips have been useful and that you enjoy these desserts.
