The BEST Carrot Bread Recipe

I absolutely love making homemade carrot bread! It’s a delightful treat that combines the sweetness of carrots with warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. The texture is moist and tender, thanks to the grated carrots in the batter. I enjoy adding a handful of walnuts or raisins for extra crunch and flavor.

The aroma that fills the kitchen while it bakes is simply irresistible. Slicing into a loaf of freshly baked carrot bread and enjoying a warm piece with a cup of tea is pure bliss. It’s a comforting and wholesome treat that never fails to bring joy to those who savor it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this recipe gluten-free?

Yes, you can substitute the all-purpose flour with a gluten-free flour blend. Look for a blend that’s meant for 1:1 substitution and contains xanthan gum, which helps mimic the texture of gluten.

Can I add or substitute other ingredients?

Absolutely! Feel free to add raisins, coconut flakes, or even pineapple chunks for a different flavor profile. You can also substitute pecans or almonds for walnuts, depending on your preference.

How can I make the recipe healthier?

To reduce the sugar, you can substitute part of the sugar with unsweetened applesauce or mashed bananas. For a lower fat option, replace some of the oil with additional applesauce or Greek yogurt.

Why did my carrot bread sink in the middle?

This can happen for a few reasons, such as overmixing the batter, opening the oven door too early, or using expired baking soda. Ensure your leavening agents are fresh and mix the batter just until combined for best results.

Can I make muffins instead of a loaf?

Yes, this recipe can easily be adapted to make muffins. Divide the batter among muffin tins and reduce the baking time to 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
