1 loaf


  • cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 ¼ teaspoons vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon almond extract

  • ¾ cup unbleached all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup whole wheat pastry flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 ½ cups shredded carrot

  • cup milk

  • cup currants

  • cup chopped almonds


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.

  2. Cream sugar, butter, and salt together in a bowl with an electric mixer until combined. Add eggs, 1 at a time, then vanilla and almond extracts.

  3. Mix all-purpose flour, whole wheat pastry flour, baking soda, and baking powder together in a medium bowl. Add to butter-egg mixture in 3 additions, alternating with carrots and milk in 2 additions. Stir in currants and almonds; the batter will be quite wet. Pour into the prepared loaf pan.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes.
