I would have given this 5 stars, but I would have liked it to be a little sweeter..other than that this was a good carrot bread. I think next time I will add more sugar...probably another 1/4 cup..But I am going to make a cream cheese frosting just to coat the top and this will add to the sweetness...thanks for a good recipe.

This is a lovely bread! I used pineapple tidbits in place of the chunks and it proved to be just right for my taste. I served just on the warm side, with a bit of butter to bring out the flavor! Delightful, Lorac!

This is great... I have made it for family and took it to church I got complments both places. I have one suggestion use crushed pineapple. The chunk was just to big.
