Move over zucchini and banana bread -- this updated twist on the traditional quick bread tastes just like carrot cake without the icing. Make it as a Thanksgiving side dish, or a Saturday afternoon snack. Either way, your whole family will be begging for more carrot bread, and your kitchen will smell absolutely divine! #breadrecipe #carrotbread #carrotrecipe #homemadebread #easybread

I love quick breads. I grew up on both zucchini and banana breads, and am just shy of being labeled a carb addict. So when I found this recipe for carrot bread, I knew I had to pop this one in the oven, STAT.

When I first made it though, this bread came out way too gooey in the center despite cooking for the allotted amount of time. I even added 10 more minutes, but it was still too soft. A soft center is incredibly yummy, but not super intuitive to cut and serve. Plus, if I added any more baking time, the edges would start to over-crisp and brown, and well, we can’t have that either.

So I lowered the temperature and let it cook for longer, and it came out perfect — yay! And wouldn’t you know it, I decided to share this recipe with you, because I’m totally nice like that. Your kitchen is going to smell divine!

The ingredients for carrot bread are really pretty simple — you probably have most of them in your fridge and pantry right now, but I still had to head to the store to pick up a few items. Lately, I’ve been experimenting with a FREE app called Flipp, and I am pretty impressed at the way it has helped me score the best deals on items I already need to buy.

Most of the time, I shop the sales over items I actually need, but Flipp takes everything in your grocery list and matches them with that week’s grocery store deals. It’s actually pretty cool!

This app is the perfect addition to my regular grocery shopping routine, and I know I’ll be using it time and time again. Instead of manually comparing prices with my shopping list — Flipp does this automatically, saving me time and money. But I’ve gotten a bit off track…..it’s time to make this delicious carrot bread!

How to Make Easy Carrot Bread

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 325 degrees, and spray a loaf pan with oil {or grease with shortening/butter}, making sure to dust lightly with flour. Grate carrots in a food processor and set aside.

Step 2: In a mixing bowl, cream the sugar and oil together, then beat in the eggs.

Step 3: In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir flour mixture into cream mixture until just combined.

Step 4: Stir in the carrots and pour into loaf pan, spreading out the top evenly. Bake 55-60 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean from the center.

Step 5: Cool on a wire rack, slice, and enjoy!

Total Cost: $1.32/one loaf

I don’t make this carrot bread as often as I’d like, but for the Fall season, it’s a must. Make it as a Thanksgiving side dish, or a Saturday afternoon snack. Either way, your whole family will be begging you for more!

  1. In typical fashion I decided at 9pm to make this. So I had to improvise. I didn’t have sugar so I substituted it with Honey ( a little big less than half a cup) and to try to make it so my mom can eat it I used Gluten free flour mix. And it’s amazing. Seriously its like cake but not sweet enough to be cake .. like if cake and bread met each other half way. Thanks!

  2. Can I make this without eggs? Flax?
    Will bake time change?
    Anything I should add or minus?
    Thank you…can’t wait to make this:)

  3. This is absolutely delicious! So quick & easy to make- I’m baking my second loaf as I type this- yesterday’s loaf was devoured!!! Thank you so much for sharing!!!
