Michael Symon's Carrot Bread
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter (softened)
  • 1 cup Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 1 Orange (zested)
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Carrots (grated and packed; about 2 medium carrots)
  • 1/4 cup Pistachios (shelled and coarsely chopped)
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a standard 9x5 inch loaf pan with butter or cooking spray.
  • Beat together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes with an electric mixer. Add the egg, milk, orange zest and vanilla and continue to beat until well incorporate.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and soda, cinnamon and salt. Add the carrots and toss to coat in the flour mixture.
  • Stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture in three additions, stirring just until blended. Over mixing the batter will create a tough cake. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and sprinkle pistachios on top. Bake for about 1 hour or until a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean. 
  • Remove from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack. Serve with butter and salt sweetened whipped cream.
