Introduction

This lightly spiced carrot bread is bursting with the sweet flavor of fresh carrots. With chunks of carrot baked into every slice, it’s moist and tender crumb is perfectly complemented by a tangy orange glaze.

It comes together easily in just one bowl. A quick glaze adds the finishing touch

  4. Fold in the grated carrots and chopped nuts.

Bake and Cool
