Ingredients

  • 2 cups grated carrots

  • 1 cup raisins

  • 1 cup water

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup orange juice

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour

  • 1 egg

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  2. Combine carrots, raisins, water, sugar, orange juice, butter, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until slightly reduced, about 5 minutes. Pour carrot mixture into a large bowl and cool to lukewarm, 15 to 20 minutes.

  3. Stir flour, egg, baking soda, and salt into carrot mixture until batter is well mixed; fold in walnuts. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
