Bread Machine Carrot Raisin Bread

Carrot Raisin Bread
Just like the popular Carrot Raisin Salad, this bread machine yeast bread recipe has the subtle tang of mayonnaise combined with the sweetness of carrots and raisins.
Yield 1 loaf



Small Loaf (1-pound bread machine)

  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 1/4 cups bread flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup grated carrots
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Red Star Active Dry Yeast
  • 1/4 cup raisins

Medium Loaf (1 1/2-pound bread machine)

  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon water
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup grated carrots
  • 1 (0.25oz) package (7g) or 2 1/4 teaspoons Red Star Active Dry Yeast
  • 1/3 cup raisins

Large Loaf (2-pound bread machine)

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2/3 cup grated carrots
  • 1 tablespoon Red Star Active Dry Yeast
  • 1/2 cup raisins


  • Have liquid ingredients at 80ºF and all others at room temperature. Place all ingredients (except raisins) in pan in the order recommended by manufacturer. Select basic cycle and medium/normal crust. Raisins can be added 5 minutes before the end of the last kneading. Do not use the delay timer. Check dough consistency after 5 minutes of kneading. The dough should be in a soft, tacky ball. If it is dry and stiff, add water, 1/2 to 1 tablespoon at a time. If it is too wet and sticky, add 1 tablespoon of flour at a time. Remove bread when cycle is finished; cool on wire rack.

In the recipe “Bread Machine Carrot Raisin Bread” you ask for grated carrots. Are the grated carrots supposed to be roughly grated carrots, or finely grated carrots? Thank you.

Hi Valerie,

I think finely grated carrots would work best.

Happy Baking!
