Better Homes and Gardens Carrot Bread with Cream Cheese Icing and Candied Carrots
From start to finish this recipe takes approximately an hour and 15 minutes, 55 minutes of which is baking time. There are 11 ingredients in the cake (not including ingredients for the frosting and candied carrots). All of the ingredients I either had in my pantry or I was able to find at my local grocery store. I used ground nutmeg, instead of the cardamon, since I already had it on hand. Additionally, I currently don't own any mini loaf pans, so I just made one large loaf.
Everyone in my house agreed that the best part of this bread was the icing and candied carrots. My two boys preferred the cream cheese icing and my husband really enjoyed the candied carrots. The actual carrot bread tasted like a basic sweet bread recipe. I like that it uses 2 cups of carrots, but doesn't taste overally vegetable based. This loaf of bread only lasted about a day, so was well received by everyone in my house and is a great way to get extra vegetables into my sweet oriented family's diet.
