Hey there! I was fea­tured on a morn­ing show here in Port­land, talk­ing about vegan bak­ing in the new year. You can check out the seg­ment here.

*sorry, it won’t let me imbed the video.

Yay, vegan baking!

Oh, and here is the recipe.

You Are My Sun­shine Loaf (or Muffins!)

This bread is so bright and sunny you can almost feel the sun­shine on your face. If Cal­i­for­nia could be made in the form of a bread, this would be it. With its lovely orange color and cit­rus notes, along with sweet bursts of raisins, this is a wel­come break­fast bread on the grayest days.

1– 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup white-wheat flour (or all-purpose flour)
½ cup sugar
2 tea­spoons bak­ing pow­der
¼ tea­spoon salt
1 cup shred­ded car­rots
1 medium apple, peeled and shred­ded
1– 1/4 cups grain or nut milk
¼ cup oil
zest of 1 medium orange
juice of one medium orange
½ cup raisins
½ cup walnuts

Pre­heat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with mar­garine or oil.

In a medium bowl, com­bine all-purpose flour, white-wheat flour, sugar, bak­ing pow­der and salt. In a large bowl, com­bine shred­ded car­rots, shred­ded apple and milk and mix until well-combined. Add oil, orange zest and orange juice. Add dry ingre­di­ents to wet ingre­di­ents in two batches until just com­bined. Gen­tly mix in raisins and walnuts.

Spread bat­ter in the loaf pan and bake for 60 to 65 min­utes, until bread is golden and a tooth­pick comes out clean. Let cool in the pan on a cool­ing rack until the pan is cool enough to touch, about 40 min­utes. Run a knife around the out­side of the loaf to sep­a­rate it from the pan, and turn bread out of the pan to fin­ish cool­ing on a rack.

If mak­ing muffins, bake in greased or lined muf­fin tins for 22–25 min­utes. Fol­low cool­ing instruc­tions for loaf.

Store left­over bread (or muffins) cov­ered at room temperature.

Yield: 1 loaf, 10 slices or 12 reg­u­lar sized muffins
