Carrot Cake - Fruited Carrot Loaf or Christmas Muffins

Carrot Cake - Fruited Carrot Loaf or Christmas Muffins created by SharleneW

This recipe was passed along many years back and has been the recipe I have used for carrot loaves ever since. By adding an additional cup of mixed glaced fruit it makes for a special holiday loaf come Christmas. If adding the additional fruit you may need to add approximately ten to fifteen minutes to the baking time. Icing with your favorite cream cheese icing adds to this delicious loaf. I also use this recipe to make Christmas Muffins - using holiday muffin cup liners. Before baking I press a cherry in the centre and make petals by using 5 blanched almonds (pointy end to cherry) Makes for great presentation. Served in a footed server with the glass dome lid has you getting raves before they take their first bite!

    This was really nice. I added half the cinnamon as stated yet thought the flavour was too pungent for my taste. Didn add any nuts or glace fruit it was gud as it is just one regret i didn freeze it and it went bad even before i could finish half of it :( Wud be making again soon . Thanx!

    I made this and froze it without trying any. We found it last night when cleaning out the freezer. This was good and we ate the whole loaf. I didnt put any frosting and hubby like it cause it wasnt too sweet. THANKS for posting it. I will try again and have it before freezing any.
