Easy Carrot Bread Recipe

I love making this Easy Carrot Bread Recipe in the spring, summer and fall as it just looks “fall-ish!”

Easy Carrot Bread Recipe


My kids, who do not love vegetables, saw me shredding all the carrots for this easy carrot bread.

“Mom are you making carrot cake with the awesome cream cheese frosting . . . or maybe that cream cheese icing the way grama makes it”?

They made some faces and said some derogatory phrases about how they would not like it when it was done; however, almost the whole carrot cake loaf went at dinner!

I was only disappointed because nothing was left for our afternoon snack.

Because it has two cups of shredded carrots, you can consider this a healthy bread! (Don’t look at the sugar! It has 2 cups of carrots in a small bowl!)

My mom takes this yummy bread often to Sunday School, and several people have asked for this easy recipe.

Friends making this moist carrot cake loaf for the first time remarked at how easy it is to make.

It is tried and tested!

Easy Carrot Bread Recipe

Baking Time Required: 1 hour, or until toothpick test comes out clean

Preheat oven @ 350°

Ingredients and Directions:

Mix together:

  • 2 cups grated carrots Banana 
  • Option: add 2 or 3 bananas for a subtle twist to create Carrot Banana Bread
  • 3/4 cup chopped nuts (optional — I left out as my children do not like nuts.)

Let stand.

Mix dry ingredients together with wet ingredients in a large bowl:

  • 1 cup sugar (Option: brown sugar – I try to avoid white sugar)
  • 2/3 cup salad oil (option to substitute vegetable oil coconut oil)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour (Option: whole wheat flour or all purpose flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • One teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • Option: 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Fold in carrot and nut mixture and pour batter into a 4-inch loaf pan (optional: prepare the pan with some cooking spray) 

Option: Make carrot cake cupcakes by simply adding your mixture to a cupcake pan to get that carrot cake flavor in bite size servings.

Bake 1 hour at 350° or until toothpick test comes out clean.

Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature, remove from loaf pan and place on a wire rack.
