We have a lot of carrots. I mean a lot. Our garden did really well with most of the things we planted (carrots, sugar peas, beats, Swiss chard, pumpkins, spaghetti squash) and not so well with other things (beans [boo] and cucumbers).
As a result, we have a lot of carrots. Did I already say that? Well, it's true. So Mr. Perfect asked me to try making zucchini bread with carrots instead of zucchini. I didn't research to see if this had already been tried. I just went for it.
We thought this one looked like Delicate Arch in Southern Utah.
Mr. Perfect was happy to grate the carrots (the messiest job in the whole process). He's a trooper.
And it was amazing.
The recipe I use for zucchini bread is really just a vehicle for vanilla and cinnamon. You could probably put almost anything in it for a moist filler and it would work. But the carrot bread was tasty. I like it better than zucchini bread. It really is more of a cake than a bread. We topped it with cream cheese frosting. Moist, moist, moist. Mr. Perfect was in heaven. Carrot is his favorite cake.
