I made this according to the recipe and it was very good! I kept one loaf and gave the other to a friend. Her family liked it too. Thanks!

This is one of my favorite recipies. I was going to post it, but it's already here:) I'v added rasins or drained, crushed pineapple, and sometimes nutmeg or allspice. And my version didn't have the raw carrots. It's a great recipie and not just for the holidays. Oh, and sweet potatoes work just like carrots, too. (one time the store was out of carrots)
