Most popular breads for breakfast would be banana bread, zucchini bread. But you can never say no to a carrot and walnut bread for breakfast.

You can make delicious bread in no time at all. Specially this carrot and walnut bread can be made in an instant. All you need is a mixing bowl and a spatula. You don’t need any a stand mixer or hand blender to make a perfect bread. Just find some time and bake yourself a delicious moist bread for breakfast.

If you want to make this carrot bread healthy you can skip regular flour with whole wheat flour. Also you can use melted butter for oil. If you want it to make it super healthy, use apple sauce instead of oil.

TIPS FOR MAKING CARROT BREAD

  • Never over bake your bread. Keep checking the bread by inserting it with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean then the bread is baked.
  • Line the loaf pan with parchment paper. Once the bread is baked, cool it for 10 mins and remove the bread from loaf pan and cool completely in a wire rack.
  • Adding freshly grated carrots to your bread will make the bread moist and soft.
  • Also gently mix the batter, mixing the batter too much will make it dense and dry.

Carrot Walnut Bread can be customised as per your liking and preference. You can change it many number of ways. Few of my personal favourites are

  • Instead of carrots, use grated zucchini or grated apples.
  • Addition of other nuts like pecans, cashews or walnuts.
  • Instead of baking it in a loaf pan, use a muffin tray to bake. It will take less time to bake than usual.
  • Apple Carrot Bread: Use half the amount of grated apples instead of grated carrots which will make it more moist.

HOW TO SERVE AND STORE

  • Serve: Cover your bread in airtight container after serving. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 1 week.
  • Store: Keep your bread fresh by storing in the fridge, sealed up, for about 2 weeks.
