Carrot Raisin Bread

"Grated carrot adds color and interest to this wheat bread that's good when spread with butter and served with a hearty soup," writes Dolores Tommer of Frankfort, Kansas. "Raisins and nuts give extra flavor and texture."

    I followed recipe as stated. It?s a bit salty to my taste. I used 1 teaspoon salt to make the second loaf. It turned out just right. Other than that, this is a good recipe.
