Mini Carrot Bread Recipe & Mini Loaf Pan Giveaway
Good Cook recently sent me their Sweet Creations Mini Loaf Pan to try out, and it took me all of 5 seconds to decide what to do with it. I usually like to make a carrot cake for Thanksgiving, but my Thanksgiving didn’t really happen this year, so no carrot cake for me. This seemed to be the perfect opportunity to whip up some easier-to-make but equally yummy-to-eat carrot bread.
You know small things are always cuter and more fun! Wrap them up in some festive parchment paper like the one I used in the background of that first picture, and these make great little gifts for co-workers or neighbors. They’re moist and have just the right blend of sweetness and spice. If you like quick breads, you’ll definitely want to try this one. Plus, it’s got carrots…so, it’s like a health food. Seriously.
- 1 cup carrots
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- ¾ cup vegetable oil
- 1½ cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp nutmeg
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ c chopped walnuts or pecans
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and grease a mini loaf pan.
- Cream sugar, eggs, and oil.
- Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
- Add wet and dry ingredients, and mix in the carrots and nuts.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until your toothpick comes outclean.
In all honesty, I’m doing my best to avoid sugar and other evil things these days, but I’ve decided not to deprive my whole family of my holiday baking. And if I have just one little bite, that wouldn’t be so bad, would it? Since there’s less sugar, oil, and eggs, and there isn’t any frosting on this, it’s not nearly as evil as an actual carrot cake anyway. Maybe I’ll have two bites.
