How to make Carrot Cake Bread


Turn on the oven so that it can heat up while you make the batter. Spray a loaf pan with oil and line the bottom with parchment paper. Set aside. 


In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, up to the eggs. In a separate, large bowl, add the  eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla and whisk to combine. 


Carefully squeeze out a bit of the juice from the pineapple and stir it into the wet ingredients. Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Fold in the carrots and pecans gently. 


Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and pop it in the oven. Bake your bread until it is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 


Let the bread cool COMPLETELY, then frost, slice and serve! Enjoy!

Recipe Variations

Make it Gluten Free: This carrot cake bread recipe can easily be made gluten free if you need it to be! Simply swap out the flour for your favorite gluten free 1:1 blend.

Make it Healthier: Swap out all purpose white flour for white whole wheat flour to make this bread a bit better for you!

Make it Lower Fat: Simply leave off the frosting if you need or want this bread to have a lower fat content.

Make it Nut Free: This bread has lots of flavor, so you can leave the nuts out to make it nut free and it will still be delicious!

How to store Healthy Carrot Cake Bread

Since this delicious Easter bread is so tender and moist, it’s important that it is not stored on the countertop. I recommend storing this bread in an airtight container or zip lock style bag in the fridge for 3-5 days.

How to Freeze Bread

I recommend slicing this carrot bread and then placing each slice into a small ziploc bag. Next, toss all the small bags into a larger, freezer style ziploc bag, label with the date and place it in the freezer. The carrot bread will last up to 3 months this way!
