This bread was delicious. I followed the exact recipe without any adjustments or changes, baked for exactly 1 hour. My family loved it! Thank you for sharing.
Love this recipe! I combined sweet potato baby food and oil to make the 3/4 cup of oil. Everything else as written. I love that is is not too sweet.
Not a fan. I was expecting this to have the flavor of carrot cake or spice cake, but it did not. It wasn't sweet enough and while it had enough of the spices that were there, something was definitely missing. The top also burned which didn't help. We will eat it rather than throw it out, but I think it's going to need cream cheese.
We really enjoyed this recipe; it has great flavor without depending on overly sweet taste. I made as is except I didn't have enough honey, so I used 1/4 c honey, 1/4 c light corn syrup, and 1/4 c molasses. It made 2 mini loaves (foil pans from store) and one slightly larger mini loaf (pan I had at home) that baked 30-35 minutes. I also added raisins to part of the batter, but most of the family ate the part without and enjoyed them. We also liked them warm with butter as one other reviewer suggested. I would like to try to replace the oil (or part of it) with the applesauce next time, also has suggested by another reviewer. Thanks for a great recipe!
I’m a Volunteer Field Editor. I tried this because I’ve lots of carrots in the fridge and the contributor is a fellow Maritimer! It turned out wonderful. I subbed in applesauce for 1/2 the oil and it’s nice and moist. I have to disagree with the other 2 reviews below- one states the nutmeg MUST be freshly grated in order for the recipe to be successful, and the other states it’s not a very sweet bread. I used ground nutmeg and it’s still great and also found that it is plenty sweet for our tastes. Don’t let those reviews deter you from trying it out!
I thought I'd give this recipe a go. I didn't see the note in the comments to use freshly grated nutmeg but I could taste the nutmeg. I sampled a little piece warm from the oven and it was good. I liked it better cooled with butter. I didn't try toasting it. Everyone that has tried it here seems to like it but it has been noted it isn't an overly sweet bread like banana bread. If you expect sweetness, you may be disappointed with the lack of it. A nice change from the normal quick breads.
Just a quick note for this loaf to be a great success, FRESHLY GRATED nutmeg is a must! You can also add in 1/8tsp cardamon, 1/4 tsp cloves and 1/2 tsp ginger for a chai flavour.
