CarrotPieDone

I used the same dough recipe as I used for cheese buns for making this carrot bread.  In fact the other half of the dough that I made for the cheese buns was used to make this carrot bread.

Carrot bread filling ingredients:

  • Carrots, raw, 1 lb ($ 0.80)
  • Butter, salted, 50 grams, melted ($ 0.09)
  • Egg, fresh, 2 large ($0.18)
  • Granulated Sugar, 2 tsp  ($0.06)
  • Pepper, nutmeg for taste

Filling Total: $1.13 or $0.09 per serving and for bread  total: $ 1.95 or $ 0.16 per serving.

Cook the carrots and cool. Shred or cut the carrots to small pieces. Mix all filling ingredients. Roll out the dough to about 113X9″. Spread the filling evenly on the dough.
