I don’t remember where I found this recipe, but it was one that worked perfectly for us in Poland. Throughout the winter we would have access to carrots (and cabbage and onions) and walnuts. Not Much Else. This was a real treat.


690ml water
350g brown sugar
250g raisins (2C)
5 medium carrots, grated
30g butter
1t cinnamon
1/2t nutmeg
pinch ground cloves
Bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for ten minutes. Pour into a mixing bowl and leave to cool completely.

450g flour
2t baking soda
2t baking powder
Sift and add to above

125g walnuts, chopped (1 1/4C)
Add and mix well
Put in a loaf tin and bake at 170ºC for 1 hour
