Carrot Bread Recipe

This Carrot Bread Recipe is delicious! The texture is a bit lighter than typical quick breads and it does not lack on flavor! Perfect for breakfast or brunch! It is a great alternative to banana bread, and it is dairy free! It is fairly easy to make, and your house will smell amazing after baking it!

An important part of this recipe is the shredded carrots. You can buy shredded carrots at the store, however I prefer to shred my own. I feel like they have a bit more moisture and you can shred them into finer pieces. I use my food processer, but you could also use a hand held grater. Which ever method you choose will work!

When making this recipe, be sure to follow the directions. The process is a little different from typical quick breads. You first beat together the eggs and the sugar until they are lighter in color, then add the oil. This step will give you a lighter texture, which is one of the great qualities of this bread.

For the spices, I used cinnamon and all spice in this recipe. If you are not a fan of all spice, you could leave it out and add in a bit more cinnamon. I really like the flavor that all spice adds so I like to add it. If you have never heard of all spice, you can buy it at the store in the spice section. It is the dried, unripened berry of the myrtle pepper tree. It does not taste like pepper though, it is closer to the flavor of cloves. If you have not tried it before I would suggest adding it!
