Carrot Bread

I just made this recipe.  It takes a bit of time, but it’s sooo good. 

1 1/3 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup raisins (or candied fruit)
1 T margarine
2 large finely grated carrots
1t cloves
1t cinnamon
1t nutmeg

Bring the above ingredients to a boil, then simmer for 5 minutes.  Cover and let sit for 12 hours or overnight.  Then add:

1 cup chopped walnuts
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 t salt
1t soda
2t baking powder

Bake in 2 loaf pans or 1 tube pan at 275* for 2 hours. (I kinda fudged the shape of the pan.)

——- recipe is from “A Lenten Cookbook for Orthodox Christians”
