<p>So I remembered I over bought raisins at one of those warehouse stores.  I'd like to bake some bread for holiday gifts.  All the recipes I've found require yeast - of which I am terrified.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I could pull some recipe from the web but I wanted to have someone tell me it's yummy before I go through the trouble of making it.</p>

<p>here is one omy favorites!</p>
<p> </p>
<ul><li class="ingredient">2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour</li>
<li class="ingredient">2/3 cup sugar</li>
<li class="ingredient">1 tsp baking powder</li>
<li class="ingredient">1 tsp baking soda</li>
<li class="ingredient">1 tsp ground cinnamon (can use all spice too!)</li>
<li class="ingredient">1/2 teaspoon salt</li>
<li class="ingredient">3 eggs beaten</li>
<li class="ingredient">1/2 cup vegetable oil</li>
<li class="ingredient">1/2 cup milk</li>
<li class="ingredient">2 cups shredded carrots</li>
<li class="ingredient">1/2 cup raisins</li>
<li class="ingredient">1/2 cup chopped pecans</li>
</ul><p> </p>
<p>Preheat oven to 350</p>
<p> </p>
<p>In a large mixing bowl, add  the whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; stir to blend.</p>
<p>In a separate bowl beat together the eggs, vegetable oil and milk.</p>
<p>Add the liquid ingerdients to the dry ingredients and stir just until barely combined. Don't over mix.</p>
<p>Fold in the shredded carrots, pecans and raisins.</p>
<p>Pour the batter into 2 greased loaf pans and bake for about 1 hour, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>This also makes quite a few mini loaves.  I have doubled, even tripled the recipe for gift giving!</p>
