Carrot Bread Recipe

Yields1 Serving

Unlike carrot cake which is so popular, this is a carrot “bread.”  It’s a very healthy choice and you can make it from start to finish in your bread machine.  Of course. you’ll need some carrots and they’ll need to be shredded in a food processor or with a hand-held grater. Most of the carrots are incorporated into the batter with some in reserve as a topping.

 3/4 cup of oil (canola, sunflower seed oil, vegetable oil)
 2 eggs
 ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
 1 pinch of salt
 2 teaspoons of baking powder
 1 teaspoon of baking soda
 ¾ cups of white sugar
 1/3 cup of packed brown sugar
 2 cups of all-purpose flour
 1 cup of grated carrots plus additional ¼ cup of grated carrots for topping
 ½ cup of chopped pecans or nuts of your choice

Add all of the ingredients to the bread pan as indicated in the “ingredients” list and select the cake bread or batter bread setting for a 1-pound loaf, medium crust.


Remove from the bread pan and let rest in the bread pan for 10 minutes and then turn out onto a wire rack or cutting board and slice and serve.
