Carrot Buns recipe

Wholemeal Spelt Carrot Buns1

Talan celebrated his 2nd birthday last month and in his nursery children can’t bring cakes and sweets but can bring bread instead, which I love. So I found this amazing carrot bread buns recipe that I have to share with you.
These are so so so delicious and truly very simple and quick to make. You can’t go wrong, I promise.

Here is what you need to make about 15 – 20 buns:

50 g fresh yeast
2 cups lukewarm water
180g (2-3 large) carrots
1 tsp salt
250 cottage or ricotta cheese
1 tbsp butter
1 kg (7 cups) wholemeal spelt flour

Wholemeal Spelt Carrot Buns


1. Crumble yeast into about half the lukewarm water
2. Place the rest of the ingredients (don’t forget about the other half of water!) in a large bowl, add the yeast and water mixture and mix and knead until you get a smooth and firm dough. Add a bit more flour if the dough is too sticky.
3. Cover the bowl with a towel and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour
4. Heat oven to 200°C
5. Now knead just a little bit more and cut into 15-20 pieces.
6. Roll into small balls and flatten a bit.
7. Bake for about 25 min
8. Now just brush those beauties with cold water, wait for a few minutes and enjoy!

Yes, really – this easy!

ps. I’m sorry for the blurry photo of my baby boy but I love this capture of him stealing grated carrots – isn’t he the sweetest? My little veggie lover.
