Pineapple Carrot Bread
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 65 min. + cooling
Makes2 loaves (16 slices each)
I just made this and ate a warm slice. It is very delicious and moist! I chose not to add the glaze because I didn't want the extra sugar. I can't say how it would be with the glaze, but I certainly don't think it needs it. The only very very minor additions I made were the following: A little bit of ground allspice (about 1/4 teaspoon for the whole recipe). I did that because a carrot loaf cake I've made in the past had allspice in it, and I really love it along with the cinnamon. I also added about 3 Tbs (or around 1/4 cup) of unsweetened apple sauce after I stirred in the carrot. I did that only because I felt the batter was just too thick. I'm glad I did that. It worked out great, but I wouldn't recommend others doing that unless they also felt the batter was too thick. Perhaps my flour may have been a factor. I don't know. This recipe is nice because it's more of a sweet bread than loaf cake. I prefer sweet breads for breakfast, which is what I made it for.
Wonderful bread, great tasting, however, it has too much sugar.
My husband gave me a wierd look when I told him what I was making but he ended up loving it! I substitute pureed white beans (with a little water to make the same consistancy as oil) for oil in all of my quick breads, you can't taste the difference but the texture is lighter and less greasy. I know it sounds wierd but once you try it you'll never go back to oil.
