  1. Wash, scrape and grate the carrots.
  2. Line a loaf form with baking paper. Alternatively grease it with butter and dust it with flour.
  3. Pre-heat the oven to 180C°. Convert!
  4. In a small pot melt the half cup of butter and the half cup of honey on low heat.
  5. Crack the two eggs into a mixing bowl and beat them lightly with a fork. Mix under the melted butter and honey with one teaspoon of vanilla and the grated carrots.
  6. Measure the one and a half cups of spelt flour and fold it under as well as the tablespoon of baking powder, the one and a half teaspoons of ground cinnamon, the half teaspoon of ground nutmeg and the half teaspoon of fine Himalayan crystal salt.
  7. When all of the ingredients are combined add the half cup of chopped walnuts and the half cup of raisins. Mix and fill the batter into the loaf form or into 12 muffin cups.

Bake the bread for 50-60 minutes at 180C°. After fifty minutes do the toothpick test. If the toothpick comes out clean then the bread has finished baking. 30 to 40 minutes baking time is sufficient should you decide on baking carrot muffins.

Let the bread cool down for half an hour before serving otherwise it will be too soft to cut.
