Carrots – a staple in many households.  From sweet to savory carrots can be used in many ways! Carrots also provide many nutrients needed for a healthy body! Around here, we love carrot cake. A perfect treat after supper to satisfy the sweet tooth. This recipe is like a carrot cake morphed into a bread! Still sweet but since its a bread, I think it is okay to eat for even breakfast! 🙂

Simple, moist and delicious! The perfect late summer treat! Pickup some carrots this Saturday at the Market and make this for breakfast on Sunday. My family devoured this whole loaf in one day! Trust me, it’s delicious.
