If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Carrot Bread from Hawaii (untested)

This recipe is written in a handwriting I don't recognize. To my knowledge, Grammy never traveled to Hawaii, but she had family members that lived there during the 1940s and her mother-in-law, Sarah Lipe Caraway, traveled there. This recipe may have come from one of them.

  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups grated carrots
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup dates or 1/2 cup raisins or 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1/2 cup nuts

  1. Mix dry ingredients well
  2. Add all liquid ingredients
  3. Let mixture rest for 20 minutes
  4. Bake in 2 loaf pans at 300°F for 1 hour and 15 minutes
Notes from writer of recipe:
"Better when aged"
"I double recipe and bake in 3 pans."
