The other day, a friend of mine mentioned that she loves all of my bread recipes and suggested I make a Carrot Cake Bread. I personally don’t eat a lot of carrot cake {shocking, isn’t it?} but love eating cream cheese icing by the spoonful, so I enlisted Chris’ help on taste testing to perfect my Carrot Cake Bread recipe.

Of course the most important element is the cream cheese frosting for Carrot Cake bread – it not only adds a lot of flavor, it is incredibly beautiful as well. It solidifies, but doesn’t harden, offering beautiful slices for Easter entertaining.

  2. Sounds so delicious! I can’t wait to make it! Are the last 4 ingredients for the topping?

  3. Your carrot bread looks delicious and I will make a gluten and lactose free version for my Easter brunch. Your pictures are beautiful and very tempting.

  4. Do you buy the grated carrots?

    Bread sounds delicious.
    I like making smaller loaves of bread to give to shut ins.
    This is perfect. One large loaf recipe usually fills 3 smaller throw away pans and ALL freeze well. Thanks!

    • Such a sweet idea! I personally like to take the extra three minutes to shred the carrots because they’re fresh and moist that way, but you can use pre-shredded carrots. I do the same with cheese and it’s life-changing!

  5. Hi, here is my gluten and lactose free version of your beautiful carrot cake. It is on my blog now :
