Yield: Yields one loaf
If you like carrot cake you’ll love this sweet, tender quickbread, which is loaded with grated carrots, dried currants, and warm spices like cinnamon and cardamom.
I used fresh carrots from my garden, a mixture of golden and thompson raisins and one tablespoon of dried blood orange peel form Williams- Sonama. I decided to ice the loaf after reading the comments from previous bakers. My husband and I both loved the loaf. I would definitely make this again.
I agree with the previous review. Although I did tweak by using whole wheat flower and using walnuts instead of currants, it didn't have the carrot flavor of a carrot cake. It was moist and certainly enjoyable, just wish it packed a little more flavor.
I did not ice the bread but it is moist and the currants add a nice sweetness. I think it doesn't have enough carrots but maybe then it wouldn't rise properly (?). Only 3 stars because it is a bit bland.
