This is a really moist hearty sweet bread that my family loves. It is adapted from a recipe in the "More With Less Cookbook". I sometimes reduce the fat even more by using apple sauce instead of the oil, but I do like the texture the oil gives it. Also, you can add 1/2 cup chopped nuts if you would like. It gives it a nice crunch.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the flour through salt together in a very large bowl.
  2. Mix the eggs, oil and milk in a small bowl.
  3. Add those wet ingredients into the flour mix and stir it just until mixed.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Put it into 2 bread pans that have been sprayed with non-stick spray (or grease them however you usually do).
  6. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 50 minutes or until done.

This is nice carrot bread. I liked the texture very much, but would prefer it to be a little sweeter and spicier, just personal preference. BTW, I cut the recipe in half to make one loaf, and baked it in an 8 by 5-inch pan, adding the optional nuts, and using the oil and whole egg. I followed the recipe otherwise. I did think the loaf turned out rather small. Thank you for letting me try your recipe.

Best after a few days in the refrigerator. I like to add a Cream Cheese Glaze.

Wonderful. Used half whole wheat anf more carrots than the recipie calls for...cooked it in a cake pan and passed it off as carrot cake. My hubby loves it, I love it... a real winner.
