This moist bread is a quick, easy, and delicious breakfast idea. There's no need to grate carrots to make this recipe; carrot juice gives it just as much flavor without the extra work.

  • In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, oil, eggs, vanilla, and carrot juice. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, ginger, baking powder, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture, whisking just to combine. Fold in the walnuts.

  • Pour batter into prepared pan; bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool in pan 10 minutes, then invert loaf onto rack to cool completely. Slice just before serving.

Cook's Notes

This bread can be frozen for up to 3 months, wrapped well in plastic wrap.

This recipe will fool any cake lovers if you skip the walnuts, make it in a cake pan, and ice it with cream cheese frosting. I get requests all the time for this cake!

I only used half a cup of sugar and I still thought it tasted a little too sweet. For carrot juice, I just blended a carrot with a teaspoon of water. To me, this is more of a cake than a bread, but it is still delicious and very easy to make either way.

while i didn't get to try this recipe, I did make it as a 'thank you' loaf for a colleague who had been running a volunteer group and it got great reviews! I left out the walnuts.

ladylocks My mother, who is diabetic, would use 1/2 C sugar and 1/4 C of Splenda. She says she get excellent taste and cuts down on the sugar intake.

Is there any way to reduce the sugar in this without affecting the recipe?
