Christmas, carrot and buttermilk loaf…

If you’ve got mincemeat to use up, this one is for you!

Welcome to my third bonus recipe….I know I’m repeating myself, but I really do love this recipe! I was so pleased with it when I first created it, it turned out even better than I hoped. Like so many of my recipes, this was the result of using up leftovers and wondering what it would create. So, I give you, my ‘Christmas Carrot and Buttermilk Loaf’.

In the dough I used up some leftover mincemeat from making mince pies at Christmas, hence the name, and added in some leftover grated carrots with the idea that it might produce a carrot cake outcome, and as I spotted half a pot of buttermilk in my fridge that also needed using up, that got thrown into the dough too! And the outcome is a light, flavoursome loaf, with a slight sweetness, studded with dried fruits from the mincemeat, and all creating a wonderful texture. If you don’t have mincemeat I’ve provided alternative options.

I really hope you like it, and I hope it makes you feel festive. Happy baking all!

  1. This recipe is absolutely delightful and is now a firm favourite here. We like it baked with the dried fruit option, makes fabulous Foodbod wedge rolls. Great for all savoury contents too…our favourite is cheese and my tomato chilli jam.
    Thank you as always Elaine.😍
